It is further accompanied by a LOA from our consignor which states, in part, “Years ago, my grandmother worked for Miss Winnie Wyant (companion of Col. Jacob Ruppert, owner of the Yankees)...at some point, Winnie gifted these two baseballs (also the 1930 ball in this auction). She explained that Ruppert would visit the Yankees clubhouse and ask the players to sign baseballs to give to friends”. A great Championship Yankees team ball with Murderers Row originally sourced directly from Jacob Ruppert.
