    Description

    1930 Babe Ruth "To Homer" Single Signed Baseball. We love the inscription on this high-grade single, which appears to be a personalization to the feat that made Ruth a global icon. His black fountain pen ink, sealed to 9+/10 perfection beneath a vintage coating of shellac, reads, "To Homer from Babe Ruth, 1930." Some form of serial code notation appears on the lower panel, likely corresponding to some early authentication paperwork, but it remains invisible upon display. Ball is an ONL (Heydler) model, suggesting possible derivation from Ruth's common appearances at World Series games as a spectator during this period. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
