Heritage is 100% confident in the authenticity of the 1927 Yankees team signed baseball or it would not be included in the auction. We are one of the very few auctioneers that employs not one, but both of the two most respected and trusted firms in the industry—PSA/DNA and James Spence Authentication. Both of these services have authenticated the autographs on this ball without reservation. The baseball derives from the personal collection of Earle Combs, the Hall of Fame center fielder for the 1927 New York Yankees and includes a letter from the close personal friend to whom the ball was given by Combs. As such, Heritage is completely comfortable with the authenticity of the baseball.
