    Description

    Late 1920's Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball. This dynamic duo's appearance on an OAL ball from the presidency of Ernest Barnard definitively dates the sphere to the 1927 to 1931 era, a period of great production for the most dangerous sluggers of Murderer's Row. The Babe takes his customary position on the sweet spot between the ball's blue and red stitching, with Gehrig angled just to the left, and close enough to allow for simultaneous display. The ink remains wonderfully bold, with points lost only to the scattered light scuffing that nips at the signatures to mild effect. Our catalog imagery should illustrate that each autograph still presents very nicely. Still to this day perhaps the most noteworthy pair in baseball history. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
