Description

    1920's-30's Babe Ruth & Dizzy Dean Signed Baseball. Fantastic pairing of Hall of Fame autographs is made all the more appealing by vintage notations (in an unknown hand) that attribute each autograph to that legend's definitive season. The Babe's side panel blue fountain pen autograph, rating an unequivocal 10/10, is dated "10-15-27," with Dizzy's 9/10 offering tagged "10-12-34." While the authenticators cannot attest to the legitimacy of the dates, there is some logic to them, as both Ruth and Dean set off on barnstorming tours immediately after their respective World Series victories these years, and each date would be appropriate for these tours and explain the somewhat unusual pairing. One could easily believe that a baseball enthusiast in a more remote part of the country would use the same baseball to collect the autographs of these two living legends several years apart as their tours came through town. Of course this is all supposition, but the tremendous quality of the autographs is not. And, as our catalog imagery illustrates, each autograph presents as a gorgeous single, which only adds to the powerful allure. Non-official ball exhibits moderate toning, delivering a desirable vintage patina. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
