    Description

    1942 "The Pride of the Yankees" Cast Signed Baseball with Babe Ruth, Gary Cooper. It's one of the most beloved sports-themed films of all time, the heart-swelling and heartbreaking tale of Lou Gehrig's brave life and tragic death. Presented is a rare relic from the filming of the biopic, an ONL (Frick) ball that joins former Yankee teammates Babe Ruth, Bill Dickey and Bob Meusel with silver screen star Gary Cooper, who played Gehrig in the movie. Other signers include legendary sports agent Christy Walsh and George McDonald, who played Wally Pipp in the film. Signatures range from 2/10 to 9/10, with Ruth and Meusel at the higher end of that scale. All nine autographs are readily legible. A special piece that straddles the line between sports and entertainment collectibles. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
