Late 1920's Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball.
Magnificent example of the most collectible dual-signed ball in the
hobby provides all the bells and whistles a serious hobbyist
requires. First, the autographs are applied with wonderfully bold
black fountain pen ink, surviving at a conservative rating of 9/10
to this day. Next, the placement of the autographs, with Gehrig
just below Ruth's sweet spot offering, makes for ideal display.
And, finally, the medium is an OAL (Barnard) ball, the model used
during the pair's most celebrated seasons (1927-31), sporting the
wonderful blue and red stitching that would be discontinued shortly
before Ruth's departure from the Yankees. As an added thrill, a
couple of deep bruises on panels well clear of the autographs
suggest that this ball saw Major League action prior to its
signing, leaving us to wonder if they may have resulted from a
meeting with one of these elite sluggers' bats, and later with an
outfield bleacher seat. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence
Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000.
