    Description

    1940's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The components of an ideal Ruth single are as follows: first, the autograph must be rendered in bold ink upon the sweet spot. Second, the ball should be of Official American League breed. And, finally, that OAL ball must be pale and unblemished, with no distracting staining or scuffing. You may use this offering as a point of reference, providing all of the bells and whistles that knowledgeable collectors crave. The blue fountain pen used to craft this enormous Bambino autograph rates a solid 9/10, and the sphere dating from the A.L. presidency of William Harridge is as clean as the proverbial whistle. From the viewpoint as sports collectibles as a commodities market, the high-grade Ruth single has been the equivalent of Microsoft stock, solid as bedrock with a consistent upward trend. Consider this purchase simply wise portfolio diversification. Few bets are any safer. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
