    1930's High-Grade Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Rating solidly in the top two or three percent of all Babe Ruth horsehide signatures, the side panel offering from the game's most beloved figure presented here could rate nothing less than a conservative 9.5 on a ten point scale. The Bambino makes a rare departure from his standard sweet spot position here, providing for a signature even larger than those typically found on Ruth solos. The evenly toned "Wilson" brand sphere has sacrificed its reverse sweet spot stamping to decades of fading, though these forces did not dare attack the all-important autograph. On the sweet spot of a white OAL baseball, this signature would easily catapult the value past the $50,000 mark, leaving one smart yet discerning collector a special opportunity indeed. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
