    Description

    Late 1920's Babe Ruth & Grover Cleveland Alexander Signed Baseball. Important orb almost assuredly saw action at Sportsman's Park in either the 1926 or 1928 World Series, which pitted Ruth's Yankees against Alexander's Cardinals in a battle for baseball's top prize. The apparent bat mark and red paint transfer on ONL (Heydler) ball suggest a wild ride into the seats of Sportsman's Park, and the presence of each legendary Hall of Famer on a ball from Heydler's presidency could only logically be explained by an October meeting. While these points could never be definitively proven, this much is clear--each legendary autograph maintains remarkable boldness and clarity these many decades later, with the Babe rating 9.5/10 on the sweet spot, and Old Pete perhaps a half-point below at 9/10. Though several surviving balls from the opening of the Hall of Fame bear the autographs of each of these storied superstars, we can assert with almost complete confidence that this is the only dual-signed example on the face of the earth. It's just pure luck that it's such a beauty as well. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
