ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
ONLY ONE BALL IN STOCK! New York Yankee battery mates Don Larsen and Yogi Berra were immortalized by their 1956 World Series perfect game. In Game Five of the Yankees' Series against the Dodgers on October 8, 1956, Larsen set down 27 Dodgers in a row, outdueling Sal Maglie and winning 2-0 for the only no-hitter...and of course perfect game...in World Series history. The last batter Larsen faced was Dale Mitchell, who was declared out by umpire Babe Pinelli on a called third strike. Mitchell and others, including Mickey Mantle in centerfield, thought the ball a bit outside, but mayhem erupted and catcher Yogi Berra jumped into Larsen's arms before Mitchell could argue. One of the great moments in baseball history, this autographed baseball commemorates it beautifully. The official MLB baseball is hand-signed by Larsen including his special "WSPG 10.8.56" inscription (World Series Perfect Game). PSADNA Authenticated the autograph has some fading due to its age but is still the perfect collectible celebrating recently deceased Don Larsen and his amazing (and unrepeated) achievement.
