    Description

    Circa 1948 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The triple-star format of the Harridge stamping on this OAL ball indicates a production date of 1946 or later, establishing this as a late-in-life model typical of most top tier Ruth singles. You can read the blue fountain pen signature from the next block, a thunderous application which we'll conservatively rate a 9.5/10. The ball itself exhibits just the lightest hints of toning and soiling, only adding to the vintage appeal while doing nothing to minimize visual appeal. This is the kind of cornerstone piece upon which to build a world class autograph collection, or to establish your existing one as such. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
