    Description

    Circa 1927 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 sphere.

    The quotation marks around Ruth's iconic nickname, and the early Gehrig format that joins that sweet spot application, tell us that this autograph session dates to early in the pair's shared Yankee tenure, and quite possibly derives from their "Bustin' Babes vs. Larrupin' Lou's" barnstorming tours of 1927 and 1928. Ruth's black fountain pen ink rates a solid 7/10, while Gehrig is a few points lighter. The ball is a retail model, but the two-tone stitching ably mimics Official balls of the era. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
