Description

    1934 Babe Ruth & Moe Berg Signed Baseball. The cast of characters residing upon this "International Special" horsehide suggests 1934 vintage quite convincingly, as each of the four signers were participants in that year's famous Tour of Japan. The great Bambino claims his rightful sweet spot position in 8/10 black fountain pen ink, with government spy Moe Berg positioned to the east at a strength of 9/10. To the north is the pairing of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Charles Gehringer and Philadelphia A's veteran Bing Miller, each 7/10. Artifacts from this historic tour, which continues to pay dividends today in the form of superstars like Ichiro, Matsui and Matsuzaka, carry tremendous collecting interest and should be pursued aggressively when offered at auction. In global baseball terms, there are few pieces more significant. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
