    1934 Tour of Japan Team Signed Baseball with Ruth, Foxx. The stars of Our National Pastime embarked on a tour of the far east in 1934, making large strides in popularizing the game of baseball in that country. Many of the game's most-beloved stars led the circuit, with most notable inclusion coming from the maddeningly popular Babe Ruth. Here we present a fine collection of signatures from that '34 tour with the Great Bambino occupying his usual position on the sweet spot. At least seven other signatures are apparent on the surface, with such legible inclusions as Gehringer, Foxx, Cascarella, Averill, and Quinn. On the panel to the south of Ruth's autograph is text reading "Nagoya, Japan - November 193-," with the final digit of the year having become obscured due to a small gouge in the ball. The orb itself permeates a vintage patina of creamy brown, with the sweet spot region signed by Ruth having been stained with an area of darkness. LOA from PSA/DNA.
