    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Dual-Signed Baseball. Never in the history of American team sports has there been a more dominant duo, each iconic Yankee launching dozens of long balls during seasons in which it didn't even require double-digits to reach the top ten in the category. So even Yankee haters have to tip their caps to the Bambino and the Iron Horse, who share space here upon the presented OAL (Barnard) sphere.

    As per standard operating procedure, the Babe claims sweet spot honors for himself, but Gehrig applies his side panel signature near enough to Ruth's autograph to allow for simultaneous display. The single-season stamping format (the Barnard presidential facsimile and seven-digit patent number stamping appeared together only in 1928) assigns this important relic to the Yankees' third World Championship season, and the first back-to-back Major League reign.

    The Hall of Fame sluggers appear in 8/10 black fountain pen ink, their preservation assisted in part by a careful application of clear-coat. A truly spectacular representation of the hobby's most essential pairing. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from Beckett.
