    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Bat. Clearly (and properly) prized by the original recipient, this remarkable keepsake exhibits the manner of stunning condition that only comes from gentle, loving care. While autographed baseballs from this most important of diamond stars could hardly be considered rare, Bambino signed bats most certainly are, and only a small percentage of that handful could match the offered specimen's 9+/10 black fountain pen offering. It appears upon a 2x4" sanded patch on the reverse barrel of a store model Hillerich & Bradsby signature model bat, the finish removed to allow the ink to adhere to the wood. The result is one of the most impressive and desirable Babe Ruth autographed pieces in the hobby today, and one of the most solid investments you're likely to encounter. Thirty-four inches in length. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000.

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