Description

    1930's Baseball Legends Multi-Signed Baseball with Ruth, Gehrig. Upon first glance, it would seem that this godly sphere derives from the 1934 Tour of Japan, and we still aren't entirely convinced that there is no connection. The cast of characters just bears too close of a resemblance to the team that crossed the Pacific: Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Gomez, Gehringer. But perhaps it is just that greatness tends to stick together, as other names of superstars that stayed stateside are here as well: Dickey, Cochrane, Manush, Simmons, Cronin, Grove, Lopez, Lyons and Rick Ferrell among them. Fourteen Hall of Famers in all have made their mark on this deeply toned OAL (Harridge) orb, with only three others present that have been locked outside the gates of Cooperstown. The improbability of finding a single baseball with such a baseball pantheon borders on the astronomical, and just a fraction of that theoretical population could match the strong condition of the signatures found here. Only Farrell (1/10), Gehringer (3/10) and Lopez (3/10) cause any amount of eye strain, with the remainder of the Cooperstonians averaging 7/10 in quality. So many great hands have held this remarkable piece--will yours be next? Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Auction LOA from PSA/DNA.
