    1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. Just eight days after this most famous of baseball duos closed out the most remarkable season in history with a four-game sweep of the World Series, Ruth and Gehrig were out on the barnstorming tour with the Bustin' Babes and Larrupin' Lous. At this October 16th stop of the tour, a young fan approached the Home Run King and the American League MVP with an Official League Ball in his hand, which the superstar Yanks graciously signed. The result is one of the most appealing examples of a Ruth/Gehrig ball on the market today, with a vintage notation that definitively links the sphere to the storied baseball year of 1927. Ruth's sweet spot signature is rendered in strong black fountain pen ink, rating a very conservative 8/10 due to minor surface wear. The Gehrig, fortuitously placed so as to provide simultaneous display with the Ruth, rates at worst a half point below. The ball shows even, attractive toning, with a mild degree of surface wear that does very little to hinder visual appeal. A dream piece for the serious baseball autograph collector. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
