    Circa 1935 Babe Ruth Multi-Signed Baseball. The Babe's career was nearing its end when this ONL (Heydler) baseball was passed around the clubhouse for signatures. While the dating of this ball is 1934 given that was the first and only year National League President John Heydler's stamping appears on a ball with red stitching, Ruth's inclusion here lets us definitively date the orb to 1935. Ruth played only 28 games for the Braves before calling it a career. The Bambino takes his residence on the sweet spot (8/10) while his contemporaries occupy the other panels. Most of the fourteen autographs are in the 6/10 to 8/10 range with a few lesser. Included are: Berger, Fletcher, Urbanski, Frank Hogan, Thompson, Maranville (8/10 with last name lighter), Whitney (material loss on signature), Spohrer, McKechnie (first name light), Brandt and more. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
