    Description

    1934 Babe Ruth Signed Tour of Japan Baseball. When Babe Ruth and other big-name baseball stars went on a barnstorming tour of the Far East after the 1934 season, it ignited a furor over the sport that led to the organization of Japan's first pro baseball league by the end of that decade. Ruth was the most popular on that tour, and for that his name occupies the sweet spot of the Official University League baseball we see here. Dating from 1934, this ball contains several signatures of players who played on that tour, however it must be noted that many of the autographs only rate a 1-2/10, if they haven't descended into illegibility altogether. Of those still visible, the signatures of Lefty O'Doul, Bing Miller, and Earl Averill are all present. LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
