    1932 Babe Ruth, John McGraw & More Signed Baseball from Will Harridge Estate. If you've been in the hobby long enough you've seen one of these presentational baseball blotters, or at the very least the Christy Walsh Syndicate photographs snapped at World Series games picturing the top names on the famed sports agent's roster. This is one of the finest examples we've encountered of this highly collectible Walsh relic from those occasions, presented to Hall of Famer and long-serving American League President William F. Harridge. Mounted on the blotter embossed with names of presenter and recipient is an OAL (Harridge) ball bearing five remarkably bold fountain pen autographs, averaging an outstanding 9/10: Babe Ruth, John McGraw (JSA has deemed clubhouse), Connie Mack, Nick Altrock and Gabby Street. The three Hall of Famers seem to jockey for sweet spot position, which provides ideal displayability. Light shellac has served its intended purpose perfectly, and has given the horsehide a delectable vintage amber tone. Keep this piece on the edge of your desk at the office and impress every person who takes the seat across from you. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
