Regarded by many as one of the most dominant rosters of all-time, the 1961 New York Yankees launched a (then) record 240 home runs in a dramatic summer marked by a dual assault on Babe Ruth's single-season circuit clout record. This framed display is a poignant reminder of that revered team. Framed to dimensions of 34 x 42-1/4" with pinstriped matting, the symmetrically arranged autographs include (45) players and team personnel from that unforgettable season. Most are cut signatures, executed to project ("9") or better quality. Includes: Arroyo, Bengis (bat boy), Berra (signed Perez-Steele postcard), Blanchard (d.2009), Boyer (d.2007), Cerv, Clevenger, Coates, Crosetti (coach, d.2002), DeMaestri, Dickey (coach, d.1993), Ditmar, Downing (signature "5-6"), Durant (inscribed "Caught Maris' 61st H.R."), Duren, Ford (signed Perez-Steele postcard), Gardner, Gonder (d.2004), Hale, Hamey (General Manager, d.1983, signed personal check), Hegan (coach, d.1984), Howard (d.1980), Houk (manager, d.2010, inscribed "The Major"), James, Johnson (d.1992), Kubek, Lopez, Mantle (d.1995, signed artist's rendering, "10" strength, inscribed "No. 7"), Maris (d.1985, signature "7"), McDevitt, Moses (coach, d.1990), Murray (batting practice pitcher), Prudenti (bat boy), Reed, Reniff (d.2004), Richardson, Sain (coach, d.2002), Sheldon, Skowron, Stafford (d.2001), Terry, Thomas, Torgeson (d.1990), Tresh (d.2008) and Turley.
