    1924 Babe Ruth World Series Single Signed Baseball. Historic horsehide was acquired in person by the father of our consignor after winning a newspaper contest with the prize of meeting the Babe before Game Four of the '24 Series at the Polo Grounds. The ONL (Heydler) ball offers the classic quotation-marked "Babe" Ruth signature on the sweet spot, widely considered to be his most desirable autograph variation. Saved from action in the seven to four victory for the Washington Senators over the hometown New York Giants, the ball has taken on a deep brown hue over the ensuing decades, while the black fountain pen autograph survives in an impressive 7/10 state. Even the original Spalding box is here, solid except for the detached (but still present) lid. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
