    1926 New York Yankees & St. Louis Cardinals Multi-Signed Baseball with Ruth, Alexander, McGraw, Huggins & Others.
    Babe Ruth played the rare role of the goat on this day, inexplicably recording the final out of the game and handing the championship to the St. Louis Cardinals when he was thrown out stealing second with Bob Meusel at the plate. Better days were ahead for the pinstriped crew as the team would win the next two World Series in convincing fashion. This ONL (Heydler) baseball is signed by members of both teams and a few other baseball dignitaries in fountain pen. Unfortunately, many of the autographs are reduced from age/exposure. Ruth's sweet spot autograph is 4/10 only because his last name is rather light. Rogers Hornsby and World Series hero Grover Alexander are comparable to Ruth's although Alexander's autograph may be a notch above. The ball holds twenty signatures with: Mike Donlin, Miller Huggins (5/10), Jesse Haines, Bucky Harris, Will Rogers, Kenesaw Mountain Landis (1/10), Jim Bottomley (4/10), Walter Johnson (reduced), Gene Tunney, Nick Altrock, John McGraw (4/10) and a few more. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
