    Description

    1934 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. The final New York Yankees team to enjoy the services of Babe Ruth is memorialized on this OAL (Harridge) ball, with the Bambino claiming his standard sweet spot position in 7/10 black fountain pen ink. Just a point lighter and immediately to his left is his trusted sidekick Lou Gehrig, and fellow Hall of Famer Red Ruffing appears on the eastern panel in equal strength. Most of the balance suffers from age and surface wear, but Sewell, Gomez and Lazzeri remain discernible. Not a perfect specimen, but attractive for the quality pairing of Ruth and Gehrig at a minimum. Included is an interesting letter of provenance that indicates this ball had been a birthday gift for the son of a friend of Babe Ruth who tragically perished in the Second World War a decade later. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
