DescriptionCirca 1935 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball with St. Louis Cardinals. We've done our best to sort out the birthdate of this unusual sphere, and our suspicion is that it was signed at some point just before Ruth's February 26, 1935 release from the Yankees, just prior to the start of spring training in Florida. Lou and the Babe's joint appearance assures that this predates Ruth's departure from the club he defined, and the roster of Gashouse Gangsters which joins them includes 1935 rookie Bill McGee. Regardless of precise vintage, the cast of characters presented is beyond impressive: Ruth (5/10), Gehrig (3/10), Dizzy Dean (twice: 7/10 and 4/10), Frisch (7/10), Durocher (2/10), Medwick (3/10), Paul Dean (6/10). Nineteen signatures are here in total, averaging 4/10 due to surface wear. "New York Club" brand baseball. Full LOA From PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
