    1926 Pie Traynor All America Team Certificate Signed by Babe Ruth. Could there be any greater honor for a Golden Age ballplayer than to be recognized by the legendary Babe Ruth as the best at your position? Surely Hall of Fame Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Harold "Pie" Traynor was suitably honored by the presentation of this elegant scroll naming him as the cream of the 1926 crop. While these certificates do occasionally surface in the hobby, the Cooperstown credentials of the recipient in this case adds particular appeal. Signing off on the Babe's choice is a committee of sportswriters from each Big League city, with the tremendously desirable "Geo. H. 'Babe' Ruth" signature variation at bottom worth the price of admission alone. All autographs present at a strength of 9/10 or better, and the certificate itself offers no condition flaws to note. Measures 13x18" in size, with matting and framing extending the final dimensions to 17x25". Certificate was gifted to actor Max Gail, who appeared in the title role of the 1984 Broadway production "The Babe." A signed Playbill and poster from this production is included. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
