    1930's Babe Ruth, Grover Cleveland Alexander & Carl Hubbell Signed Baseball. A relic from the Great Depression years, this "Lively League" baseball is signed by seven in black fountain pen, but only three signatures matter. We find the Sultan in unfamiliar territory, on a side panel, where he signs large and bold on the diagonal. Meanwhile, Old Pete is seen occupying Ruth's rightful domain on the sweet spot, where he signs "G.C. Alexander." Closing out this tremendous Hall of Fame trio, is The Meal Ticket, one of the most dominating southpaws to ever summit a pitching mound. The ball shows toning and there are four other inconsequential signatures. Ruth and Hubbell grade an 8.5/10 while Alexander comes in at 6.5/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
