    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The Babe's appearance upon a black and red stitched ONL sphere always leads one to wonder if Fall Classic history is the root cause, as the Senior Circuit had switched to full red stitching by the time Ruth transitioned to the Braves in 1935. Significant wear on the ball likewise makes for a reasonable hypothesis that this is a gamer, particularly since the sweet spot signature is unaffected by the bulk of the abrasions. Bambino's blue ink survives at an impressive strength of 8/10, with some toning over the second letter in his famous nickname the only issue worthy of note. Worn stamping makes identification of the League president impossible. A rock-solid single which allows us to dream it might be one of his World Series homers. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
