One more if you all don't mind.

This is supposed to be a 1961 Yankee ball, however it has at least 4 players who did not play in 1961 - Long, Bouton, Linz and Bridges. Could it possibly have been signed in Spring Training 1961?

I've had this ball quite awhile, purchased in a collection from a journeyman MLB player who was with the White Sox during the 1960-63 period where I think this ball came from.

I believe there are some clubhouse sigs on this ball appreciate if you concur, and which you think are clubhouse sigs. Also, can anyone identify the one between Arroyo and Stafford?

The Mantle obviously is not vintage and was added later.

All opinions welcome and appreciated.

Bridges was traded from the Reds to the Yankees in Dec of 1961 so he wouldn't have signed it until 1962
