    Description

    1927 "Babe" Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The brilliant Bambino was just two weeks from hitting the first of his record-setting sixty home runs during the Yankees' most glorious season when he autographed the sweet spot of this Harwood baseball for a fan in West Palm Beach, Florida near the close of 1927 spring training. The black fountain pen survives at a boldness of 7/10 upon this toned and evidently game used sphere, as a barely discernible notation on the western panel appears to provide a game score of some sort. The eastern panel reveals a notation (in an unknown hand) which reads "West Palm Beach 3-31-27." Rest assured that Ruth is the only autograph present though, with the 1927 vintage elevating this specimen to the peak of desirability for collectors looking for something special. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
