    Circa 1927 "Babe" Ruth Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA VG-EX+ 4.5. The faded but still discernible Ban Johnson presidential stamping on the side panel of this Official American League sphere, and the quotation marks around Ruth's famous nickname, assign this offering the most alluring of all horsehide vintages. The Golden Age relic finds Ruth at the height of his talent and headline-grabbing fame, his black fountain pen signature applied with 5/10 boldness between the patriotic red and blue stitching. The ball garners a 4/10 rating from the strict arbiters at PSA/DNA, accounting for the final grade as listed, but it's a ball that should be judged on far more than such bloodlessly objective data. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, VG-EX+ 4.5. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
