Detailed description on website.

Longing for a return to championship form under new owner George Steinbrenner, the 1973 New York Yankees stayed atop the American League East for much of the summer, holding first place as late as August 3. But an abysmal road record (30-51) coupled with a torrid Baltimore surge (41-19 in final 60 games) left the Bronx Bombers at 80-82, 17 games off the pace. This OAL Cronin ball is autographed by (20) members of a rebuilding pinstriper roster that played the final season in the old Yankee Stadium before a two-year renovation project moved the club to Queens. The mildly toned orb features bold ballpoint pennings (average “8” strength), including: Sweet Spot: Stottlemyre, Peterson, Murcer; North Panel: McDaniel (clubhouse), F. Alou, Granger, Callison, J. Hegan (coach) and White (clubhouse); South Panel: McDaniel (repeat clubhouse signature), M. Alou, Dobson, Nettles, Howser (clubhouse); West Panel: Beene, Moses, Lanier, Turner (coach), Lyle; East Panel: Sanchez, Munson, Michael, Buskey, Kline; Reverse Sweet Spot: Houk (clubhouse).
