    Description

    1934 Tour of Japan Multi-Signed Baseball with Babe Ruth. It was a story made for Hollywood, with the most famous man in America, his faithful Yankee sidekick, a few other baseball legends, and a secret agent moonlighting as a Big League catcher. No serious baseball collection could possibly live without an artifact from the amazing 1934 Tour of Japan, and here we offer a captivating piece from the far side of the vast Pacific. The Babe fittingly occupies the sweet spot of this "Spalding" baseball signed on the historic Tour, appearing in the boldest black ink imaginable. His traveling teammates follow suit, with Manush, Sewell, Averill, Gehringer and Higgins all rating 9/10 or better. Light shellac is to be given credit for the superb signature quality, and the attractive sepia tone of the ball. Clearly one of the finest Ruth signatures ever found on a baseball, with historical value to add even further to the ball's tremendous appeal. LOA from PSA/DNA.
