    Description

    Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. Fantastic "Boys Amateur" baseball was inscribed and signed to an adoring fan by The One & Only in 9.5/10 jet black fountain pen, starting from the Wilson stamp on the top panel and ending half way into the sweet spot: "To Skippy Dalbry, From Babe Ruth."

    While the ball shows some discoloration and wear, those imperfections are easily excused thanks to the bold and spectacular inscription and signature, radiating out to the viewer in resplendent glory. Ruth's flowery, cursive strokes, neat penmanship, and large format signature, accurately reflect his charisma, patience and celebrity. Still the game's greatest player, personality and signature. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from SGC.
