    Circa 1930 Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig & Ed Barrow Signed Baseball. We've seen our share of Ruth/Gehrig duets in our day, but the addition of fellow Hall of Fame Yankee Ed Barrow is a very welcome variation on the theme. A fourth signature of team owner Jake Ruppert is actually applied by Barrow, but at least it nicely follows the Bronx theme. The Babe appears on the sweet spot in 6/10 black fountain pen ink, and Lou takes his standard position to the east with equal boldness. Barrow's signature to the north (as well as his secretarial Ruppert to the west) rates a booming 9/10, and is unquestionably the rarest of the three when it comes to signed horsehide. The OAL (Harridge) ball provides the ideal home for these essential autographs. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
