    Description

    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Baseball. A magnificent sweet spot signature from the greatest Yankee of them all gives this Pacific Coast League ball the look of a $30,000 single, though side panel signatures from fellow Yanks Harry Williams (1913-14) and Jimmie Reese (1930-31) will make the sphere far more affordable for those seeking a top-flight Ruth autograph on a baseball. One shouldn't turn up his nose at the signers who share space with the Bambino however, as Williams carries strong appeal for his early service to the New York Americans, and Reese gained some degree of fame as the Babe's roommate for his oft-quoted remark regarding Ruth's hard-partying ways: "I don't bunk with the Babe. I just bunk with his suitcase." Each of these autographs are equal in strength to the Babe's 8/10 offering. The ball itself shows light, even toning with just a hint of foxing well clear of the all-important Ruth. A fine playing days Ruth autograph for the serious collector. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
