    1942-45 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball, Beckett Auto 7. While the superstar slugger's famous and unfailing generosity of spirit ensured that his is the most available of all pre-war sporting legends, the tremendous demand for his essential autograph has nonetheless powered a sustained upward trajectory in auction results throughout the years. Historically, the Babe's signature has been the hobby's safest bet. It has been commonly and properly stated that every great sports memorabilia collection begins with the Babe Ruth single signed baseball.

The non-official ball that provides that signature a home is lightly and evenly toned. Encapsulated by Beckett, Auto 7. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
