Description

    1940's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball, PSA NM 7. An enormous and marvelously bold blue fountain pen sweet spot signature on an OAL (Harridge) ball makes this a dream piece for legions of baseball autograph collectors. While its true that the coating of shellac that covers the Bambino's autograph has yellowed over the passing decades, we must give it the lion's share of credit for maintaining the fantastic strength of the autograph. The graders at PSA, notoriously tough with their standards, applied a subgrade of 8/10 for the signature, though we'll refer you to our catalog imagery and see if you agree with our contention that the score is very conservative. A grade of 7/10 for the baseball itself accounts for the final score as listed. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The way you grouped lots, photographed, and presented the material was too notch. I was impressed that you took the time to attribute coins to the Krause reference as their "plate coin" and that many of your descriptions included pertinent facts and infor
