Description

    Circa Mid-1920s Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Few can imagine the eventful decade that Babe Ruth would have when the 1920s began--the Great Bambino reshaped the way the game was played and the way pitchers thought about hitters. The longball became an integral part of the sport, especially amongst Babe and his exceptional New York Yankee teammates. Here we produce a fine orb from that era, signed on the sweet spot by Ruth himself. The OAL (Johnson) labeling means that the ball itself was produced no later than 1927. While some minor regions of staining affect the ball in a couple spots, all misgiving s of this kind thankfully steer clear of the autograph. Exciting to think that this orb may trace its origins to the hallowed Murderer's Row Yankees, regarded by many as the sport's all-time finest collection of players. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
