    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Program. This is the kind of piece collectors see in their dreams, simple and yet so perfectly constructed that it is almost as if the fan that originally acquired it had a psychic notion of the future hobby, and what it would most crave. Clearly, if we were to pick any year's program on which to place this historic pair, it would be 1927, when the Babe clubbed five dozen, and the Iron Horse took American League M.V.P. honors. But even with access to a time machine, we might not have demonstrated the wise forethought to stack the two signatures so perfectly on either side of the bold text reading "Season of Nineteen Twenty-Seven." The Babe's 10/10 pencil is not to be outdone by Gehrig's 9/10 blue ink, and while the scorecard itself shows a degree of wear, with toning at the edges, staining on rear cover and a few scattered minor tears and holes, none of this materially affects the spectacular display value. Date of "Jul 22 1927" is stamped on cover, and interior box scores are unmarked. A fine centerpiece to even the most sophisticated autograph collection. LOA from PSA/DNA.

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