    Circa 1930 Babe Ruth, John McGraw & Connie Mack Multi Signed Baseball. Babe Ruth needs no introduction, as the greatest player in baseball and also the premier ambassador of the sport for decades. Connie Mack, the single winningest manager in baseball, spent an illustrious fifty years with the Philadelphia A's. John McGraw was a true character, known for his rather dirty style of blocking baserunners back when there was only one umpire per game and he was distracted by the flight of the ball. He went on to a formidable career as a player, batting .334 lifetime, It was as a manager, though, that he really gained a following, as he racked up the second most victories, only behind Mack.

    Although the baseball itself is in Poor condition with lots of scuffing and a drill hole in the logo panel, there are four legible signatures with three Hall of Famers included. Mack and Ruth share the sweet spot, with Mack appearing in much fainter 3/10 form, while the Ruth could normally rate a 9/10 were it not for the scuff marks that bring it down to a 5-6/10. Directly on Ruth's left side is a nice, rare signature of McGraw in near 7/10 form, also with some scuffing touching on the autograph. Nick Altrock is the remaining legible signature, with another one undecipherable. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
