Signed baseball #2: Don Larsen

My second signed baseball is one of the coolest pieces of Yankees memorabilia that I own. Back in 2006, I had the fortunate chance of attending a charity event honoring the 50th anniversary of Don Larsen's perfect game. There were a ton of past Yankees there I got to meet - Yogi Berra, David Cone, Graig Nettles (who was a jerk), Goose Gossage, Joe Girardi and Jim Leyritz to name a few. It was awesome.

I didn't get to meet Larsen, but the goody bag from the event contained the following signed ball, amongst other things. It's really a great keepsake and one that I'll always treasure.

  1. Bummer hearing that Nettles was a jerk. He was a player I followed when I was younger.
