Description

    1920's Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig & Miller Huggins Signed Baseball, PSA NM-MT 8. No superlative seems appropriately strong when it comes to describing this remarkable sphere compiling the three most important Hall of Fame autographs from the Murderer's Row days at Yankee Stadium. While even the most casual collector is aware of how desirable a Ruth/Gehrig duo is, the addition of the diminutive Yankee skipper to a ball featuring the superstar sluggers lifts this ball to the absolute peak of the hobby. Of the multitudes of future Cooperstown residents to wear pinstripes during baseball's Golden Age, Huggins is unquestionably the toughest, having succumbed suddenly to blood poisoning in 1929 as a result of an eye infection. He signs in his standard "MJ Huggins" format to the left of the Babe's booming sweet spot signature, with the great Lou Gehrig framing balancing out the trio on the right. PSA grades the Ruth and Gehrig signatures as 8, and the Huggins just a touch below at 7. The OAL (Barnard) ball is blazingly white for one of such an advanced age, with bold, dark stamping, grading an 8 according to the judgment of PSA. Quite clearly this baseball was placed in a dark, dry place very soon after it passed through these historic hands, and forgotten. Now it resurfaces to allow one elite collector the opportunity to own a singularly unique and perfect memento of the Yankees' most glorious era. LOA from PSA/DNA.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000.
