    1946-48 Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker & More Signed Baseball. The winning prize in a collectibles lottery (entry form included) is now a lot in the Heritage May 2013 Signature Auction, a special slab of horsehide blessed with three autographs from gentlemen immortalized in Cooperstown bronze. Taking sweet spot honors is the great Babe Ruth, projecting at a respectable 6/10. Directly to the south is the Hall of Fame pairing of Tris Speaker and Ray Schalk, each surviving in impressive 8/10 fashion. Rounding out the cast on an adjacent panel are Sid Keener and Lou Brissie, at 7/10 and 8/10 respectively. The ball is encapsulated in JSA/Beckett's new tamper-proof holder and while we might not agree with their strict assessment, we must report that they rate the ball and autographs 4/10 and 5/10 respectively. Ball's stamping is faded from visibility. Encapsulated by JSA/Beckett. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
