Not only are the Captain and Sandman both present here, but they even occupy the same panel—and, what's more, are situated snugly next to each other for maximum display appeal! Their black-ink signatures, like those on the rest of the creamy OML (Selig) ball, average about "5-6" strength. Also featured are Torre (faint), Hernandez, Mussina, B. Williams, Randolph, Knoblauch, Spencer, Stottlemyre, Martinez and O'Neill, with some scattered fading throughout. Yes, the Yanks captured the A.L. pennant in 2001, but the real historical significance of that season is how the team endured and inspired with their graceful humanity after the tragedy of September 11th.
