    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Multi-Signed Baseball.
    Only during the fabled 1927 "Murderer's Row" season did Ban Johnson's presidential facsimile signature join scripted "American League Ball" stamping on official Junior Circuit horsehide, assuring the finest vintage possible for this essential autograph pairing.

    The Sultan of Swat (5/10) takes his rightful place on the sweet spot, like a king on his throne, with "Babe" appearing dark and inside double quotation marks, a most attractive format which was still common for him during this period. "Ruth" begins to get lighter after the "R" but is still legible. PSA/DNA has deemed the Ruth as clubhouse while SGC did give a positive assessment. The Iron Horse (3/10) appears on the side panel to the left of the OAL stamp. Coach Charles O'Leary and who appears to be catcher Johnny Grabowski are visible on the side panel to the right of the Babe. The ball itself has darkened to a grayish color with some scuffing but the blue league stamping and red/blue stitching are still vibrant.

    Together Ruth (sixty home runs) and Gehrig (A.L. MVP) clubbed a single season record 107 home runs this World Championship season. Full LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
