    Description

    1932 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. A vintage notation in an unknown hand dates this hobby essential to the 1932 season, one best remembered for the Babe's "Called Shot" in the third game of the World Series. We have no reason to doubt that assignation, as it would match the specs of this OAL (Harridge) ball and the red and blue stitching which would be discontinued two years later. Ruth's sweet spot signature rates an impressive 8/10, dotted with a bit of foxing that occupies the northern and western panels as well. Also included are the remnants of the original "Reach" box in which the ball was originally housed. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
