    Description

    Late 1920's Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball in Box. Marvelous OAL sphere dates to the brief presidency of Ernest Barnard, who held the reins of the Junior Circuit from 1927 through 1931. This coincidentally figured to be the Babe's most prolific five-year stretch of home run heroics, with 255 round-trippers logged during that half decade. So you can be certain that the young recipient of this signed sphere saw it for the treasure it was, and the fact that it still resides in its original (though somewhat tattered) box further validates this assertion. The ball itself has benefited nicely from its cloistered existence, with the sweet spot signature rating a solid 8.5/10 in boldness. A couple small dots of toning skirt the edges of this important autograph, but the ball remains quite clean otherwise, as our catalog photography should illustrate. A highly desirable high-grade single from the pinnacle of the Bambino's greatness! LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
