Description

    1948 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. High-grade single dates from just two months before the Babe lost his battle to cancer, though the bold blue fountain pen inscription is rendered with a firm and steady hand. He inscribes the OAL (Harridge) ball to a friend, penning "To Art Goldie, From Babe Ruth, 6-15-48." The ball itself remains in similarly fine condition, toned an even, creamy shade. Certainly one of the cleanest solo Ruth balls to reach the auction block in recent memory, and one that would bring $50,000 or more if unpersonalized. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
