Under the current rules, it's impossible. A pitcher doesn't get credit for a perfect game unless he pitches the entire game and allows no baserunners. There have been a few cases where a pitcher went 9 perfect innings then lost the game in extra innings. It used to be the case where if a pitcher pitched nine perfect innings, he would get credit for a perfect game even if he allowed baserunners in extra innings. However, these games are no longer officially credited as perfect games.

On May 26, 1959, Pittsburgh Pirate Harvey Haddix pitched 12 perfect innings but gave up an error in the 13th. The Pirates lost to the Milwaukee Braves 3-0.

On June 3, 1995, Montreal Expo Pedro Martinez pitched 9 perfect innings but gave up a hit in the 10th. The Expos beat the San Diego Padres 1-0.

It is possible to throw a no-hitter but still lose the game. New York Yankee Andy Hawkins and Boston Red Sox Matt Young both lost games in the early 90's without giving up a hit. The runs came as a result of errors by other team members.

How much is a baseball pitched by Don Larsen from the 1956 World Series perfect game?

The value of the baseball will rely on your ability to prove that the baseball was used in the World Series perfect game that Don Larsen pitched. Otherwise it is just a used baseball with a story.The baseball would have to be accompanied by strong provenance proving that the baseball was used in the 1956 World Series perfect game pitched by Don Larsen. The stronger the provenance the more valuable the baseball. The provenance would have to be from a League or team official, player or family member. A letter of provenance from a fan at the game is not sufficient. Word of mouth would bring a low value.Provenance is the history of ownership of a particular item. It allows the buyer to secure additional insight as to the origin or chain of custody of the item.
