    Description

    Early 1940's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Absolutely exceptional specimen will serve as the cornerstone of the finest of Hall of Fame single signed baseball collections. Ideal in all regards, the offering pairs a clean and milky-white OAL (Harridge) ball and a bona fide 9/10 sweet spot signature rendered in flowing blue fountain pen ink. A black ink notation in the autograph seeker's hand gifts this treasure to a lucky young collector, who clearly took great interest in the baseball's care. Babe Ruth autographs, and particularly those of the utmost quality, have been the hobby's most consistent and unshakeable performers in the hobby market for years, a trend which will almost certainly continue as long as baseball is played. All indicators would suggest that this is one of the auction's safest investments. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
