    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Baseball. One naive autograph collector's misguided decision will bring a bold sweet spot Ruth signature into a more affordable realm for the smart hobbyist. This vintage Worth Official Mid-Atlantic League ball lived for decades as a Ruth single, until someone brought it out to the ballpark in the 1960's and added the signatures of Moose Skowron, Don Kessinger and a third unidentifiable party. Each subsequent autograph remains suitably distant from the Bambino so as to afford the appearance of a single signed ball without the soaring price tag to match. Ruth's autograph rates a conservative 8/10 due to some rather insignificant surface wear, but the black fountain pen ink that forms the autograph is wonderfully strong. The ball itself is nicely toned, supplying appropriate vintage patina. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
