    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The sweetest sweet spot signature of all appears between the red and black stitching of this ONL (Heydler) ball, signed for a young baseball fan in the later years of Ruth's storied career. The National League markings lead us to wonder if this one saw action in the 1932 World Series, though it clearly saw action after Ruth's autograph was applied, as the letter of provenance from the young fan's relative notes. This sandlot activity has left the ball a bit dirty, with scattered scuffs and scrapes, but the signature has survived the ordeal rather well and remains unmistakable and eminently legible. And could it be the very ball that the Babe knocked out of Wrigley Field for his magical "Called Shot?" We can definitely dream... LOA from PSA/DNA.
