Description

    1940s Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Visible from a full country mile, this stellar Babe Ruth single carries with it many of the hallmarks that the distinguishing collector has trained himself to look for. The fountain ink signature amply takes up the entire sweet spot of this 1940s-era OAL (Harridge) orb, diminishing the staining on the panel south of that and the light scuffs on the western panel to near obsolescence. Every distinct curve of the Great Bambino's coveted autograph can be clearly followed by observers of this gem. Once again, it cannot be stressed how such an aesthetically arresting example can enhance any collection with its striking appearance. Far from a gamble, investments of this caliber can only increase in value. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
