Folklore or fact, the story of "The Called Shot" at Wrigley Field ranks among the most noteworthy in the Babe's biography, the event most universally referenced in association with the 1932 Major League season. One last World Series sweep was Ruth's parting gift to his adopted Big Apple hometown, his final season of brilliance before a steep and steady decline toward 1935 retirement.
And so, as the great old Yankees team that pulled itself up off the mat after three years of despair to reassert its rightful claim to the Major League throne, the 1932 edition will always hold a special place in our heart. We've encountered no relic that so fittingly commemorates that phoenix from the ashes as the presented OAL (Harridge) ball, signed by twenty-two World Champs. An enormous sweet spot Babe Ruth provides the nucleus, applied in the same 8+/10 and better black fountain pen ink that characterizes the entirety of the signed roster.
The balance: Earle Combs, Eddie Farrell, Frank Crosetti, Cy Moore, Ed Wells, Lefty Gomez, Ben Chapman, Joe Sewell, Cy Perkins, Bill Dickey, Arthur Fletcher, Walter Brown, Tony Lazzeri, Art Jorgens, Lyn Lary, Red Ruffing, John Allen, Herb Pennock, Dan MacFayden, Myril Hoag, Lou Gehrig.
Light foxing speckles the otherwise creamy curves of horsehide, interspersed with bright red and blue stitching and the boldest factory stamping ever encountered on an octegenarian sphere. Like the team it celebrates, this ball is a true survivor and a fitting reminder that true Champions are not the ones who are never knocked down, but rather those who always get back up. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
