    1927 Babe Ruth Single Signed Batting Practice Foul Baseball. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig spread the game of baseball by staging numerous exhibitions following the World Series in 1927. On October 17, the slugging tandem landed in Des Moines, Iowa for an exhibition at Western Park. A crowd gathered as both put on a hitting display just before the game. This ONL baseball was fouled off by The Bambino before the game. A youngster ran the ball down and Ruth asked him if he would like it signed. Of course, the kid ran up to Ruth who signed this used orb. The blue ink signature rates 4/10 on the sweet spot. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
