Each ball features special stampings in honor of the respective player. Mickey Mantle (3): Three 1996 OAL balls specially produced for use in the New York Yankees home game on Mickey Mantle Day, held at Yankee Stadium on August 25, 1996.

Joe DiMaggio (6): Six 1998 OAL balls specially produced for use in the New York Yankees home game on Joe DiMaggio Day, held at Yankee Stadium on September 27, 1998.

Each ball displays very light age toning and is otherwise in Nr-Mt condition. All of the boxes are in Nr-Mt condition. Each ball is accompanied by an individual COA from Yankee Clipper Enterprises (with corresponding label affixed to each ball). Total: 10 balls, each in their original box. Reserve $100.
