    Description

    Circa 1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. The most sought after duo in baseball collecting comes to you here in wonderfully bold vintage ink, almost certainly applied during the famous Bustin' Babes vs. Larrupin' Lous barnstorming tour that followed the Yanks' October demolition of the 1927 Pittsburgh Pirates. Ruth appears in his customary sweet spot position, complete with the quotation marks around "Babe" that typified his pre-1928 autograph. Equally large, and perhaps half a shade lighter at 7.5/10, is Gehrig on the side panel, positioned close enough to his Hall of Fame teammate that simultaneous display is possible. The "Rawlings Special League" ball that serves as a home to this illustrious pair remains brilliantly white, with just a few insignificant spots of toning well clear of the autographs. The patriotic blue and red stitching perfectly mimics that of Official American League balls of the era, providing the ultimate in visual dramatics. A true cornerstone piece for all but the most spectacular baseball autograph collections. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
