Hidden Treasures’ latest product is packaged baseballs autographed by current or former Yankees.
The newest issue to Tristar’s “Hidden Treasures” product is called the Autographed Baseball Yankees Edition, featuring an autographed baseball of a current or former Yankee in every box.
The "Grand Treasure" prize is a dual-signed baseball from Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. (The prize comes complete with a certificate of authenticity). Two “Diamond Treasures” will be awarded – a three-time World Series Champions Joe DiMaggio commemorative Rawlings baseball (from the year 2000), featuring signatures of Derek Jeter, Roger Clemens, Mariano Rivera, Tino Martinez, Joe Torre, Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams, David Cone, Paul O’Neill and more – and a Roger Maris autographed baseball.
Winners of the “Retired Number Treasures” will receive baseballs signed by
Yankees who have had their uniform numbers retired, including DiMaggio,
Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Casey Stengel, Billy Martin, Elston Howard, Phil
Rizzuto, Ron Guidry, Don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Yogi Berra and Bill Dickey.
Winners of Game-Used Treasures will receive authenticated autographs of
seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens on an MLB authenticated game-used baseball.
