    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Signed Baseball. The short presidential reign of Ernest Barnard allows us to definitively date this OAL sphere to the 1927-31 era, the height of the Bambino's considerable slugging powers and one during which he never failed to capture the American League home run title. His sweet spot signature is simply gorgeous in this representation, applied with flowing black fountain pen ink to an 8.5/10 boldness. The ball exhibits the exact form of light toning one would desire for its vintage, and the manufacturer's stamping remains dark and vivid. We must note that other autographs have been professionally removed to provide the look of a very expensive single, but only the most eagle-eyed of hobbyists will be able to detect the magic. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
