    Description

    Late 1930's Lou Gehrig Single Signed Baseball. Much like the man who signed it, the presented baseball is a true survivor, bravely conquering the passing years with only a hint of struggle. The Iron Horse's black fountain pen signature registers at a remarkable 9/10 on the sweet spot of this "Interscholastic League" ball, beneath a "Best Wishes" greeting. Close inspection by James Spence has revealed that the greeting was long ago traced over by its recipient, but it must be stressed that the signature itself is unaffected by this enhancement. At least one hundred times as rare as singles from his hard-slugging partner in crime Babe Ruth, the Gehrig single signed baseball remains one of the most coveted rarities for Yankees and Hall of Fame collectors alike. This specimen ranks near the upper end of that thin supply. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
