Description

    Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Single Signed Portrait Baseball. A painstakingly rendered portrait of the iconic Yank on the southern panel of the provided Official American Association sphere elevates the piece from a mere hobby essential to a bona fide work of art. John Giancaspro's study of Ruth is one of the finest we've encountered on horsehide, and the same can be said of the Babe's 8.5/10 sweet spot offering in black fountain pen ink. An exciting find for the collector seeking something truly special. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
