    Description

    Circa 1928 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. Equal in quality to Ruth and Gehrig signed spheres that have summited the $40,000 mark at auction, this outrageously high-grade specimen should realistically approach a similar level despite the addition of contemporary Boston Red Sox Bill Carrigan and Ira Flagstead, particularly given the fact that Carrigan managed Ruth in Boston upon his arrival in the Majors. Matching the ideal bold composition of the four black fountain pen autographs upon this "Brine's Official League Ball" are the signatures' ideal placement, each very effectively presenting as a single upon its own hemisphere of horsehide. The subtle variations in the formation of the Ruth and Gehrig autographs, paired with the fact that Carrigan and Flagstead shared a dugout just two and a half seasons, allow us to date the ball with great confidence to the period between 1927 and 1929, coinciding with the absolute height of Murderer's Row Yankeedom. We must note that our authenticators believe the ball was professionally cleaned to remove grime accumulated over the passing decades, though this will not be apparent upon display. A splendid addition to any high-end baseball autograph collection. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
