    Description

    1920s "Babe" Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Based in the two-tone stitching and presence of the quotation marks around the Bambino's signed first name, we can presume that the given Ruth single was signed during the mid-1920s. Fading and mottling have rendered the ink in "Babe" to a smudgy shape, however it can still be read under light and the slugger's recognizable "B" retains its familiar figure. Surname remains fully legible and rates a 5-6/10. Spalding stamping is proper to the orbs used during the Babe's 1920s playing days that up to and including the epic Murderer's Row days with stamping reading "Official Cork Center League." Due to a prior exposure with moisture, various spots of the ball's skin have minute bumps across its surface, but they do little to affect the allure of the sweet spot signature. LOA from PSA/DNA.
