    Description

    Early 1930's Lou Gehrig Single Signed Baseball. Anyone with even a passing knowledge of the Hall of Fame autograph market knows just how tough the Gehrig single is. Perhaps it was the Iron Horse's tremendous humility that precluded him from taking center stage, or the fact that most autograph hunters sought out his teammate Babe Ruth instead. Whatever the reason, you'll find one hundred (or more) Ruth singles for every Gehrig, so one shouldn't miss this rare chance to fill a hole that is found in even the most advanced collections. Lou's unpersonalized side panel signature rates a very conservative 6/10--many would call it 7/10 instead. The "Junior League" ball that serves as its home is a hair smaller than Official baseballs, but still much larger than the "mini balls" that occasionally surface in the hobby. When it comes to Lou Gehrig solos, such minor considerations must be taken in context. Your collection will increase exponentially in quality with the addition of this piece. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
