    Description

    Circa 1932 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA EX-MT 6. This particular breed of ONL (Heydler) baseball is the format that the Babe sent over the center field fence at Wrigley to make good on his "Called Shot" prediction in the 1932 World Series, Ruth's final taste of Championship glory. By 1934, the two-tone stitching would be abandoned by the Senior Circuit, so this is definitely a relic from Ruth's Yankee years. Logic would dictate that the Fall Classic is the likely origin, as the American League superstar would have little other opportunity to come face to face with National League horsehide.

    Ruth's sweet spot signature is rated 7/10 by the good folks at PSA/DNA, with the ball earning a 5/10, due primarily to the circular stain that crosses the slugger's surname. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, EX-MT 6. Full LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
