    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. Dually signed baseballs bearing the autographs of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig are highly coveted in any vintage, but never more so that during the fabled "Murderer's Row" season of 1927, when The Sultan belted sixty home runs, The Iron Horse took home the league MVP hardware, and The Bronx Bombers established themselves as the greatest single season performers in the history of team sports.

    The combination of Ban Johnson's presidential facsimile signature and the scripted "American League Ball" stamping assure the finest vintage possible for this essential autograph pairing. The 5/10 steel-tip black fountain pen offerings of Babe Ruth across the sweet spot, with his period quotation marks, and Gehrig on the panel below, parallel to his hard-slugging partner and close enough to allow for simultaneous display, is truly an uncommon blessing.

    The ball itself is clean and evenly toned to an attractive light gray shade, with bold league stamping and bright red/blue stitching, Still the best duo/year you could ever hope for on a single baseball. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
