Description

    1927 All-American Team Certificate Signed by Babe Ruth from The Al Simmons Collection. His Philadelphia Athletics would oust Ruth's Yankees from the American League throne in a couple years, but at this point the great Bambino had only respect, but no fear, for the superstar outfielder. While the Babe's 1927 season stands as one of the greatest ever supplied to our national pastime, Simmons put on quite a show of his own in the City of Brotherly Love, recording a career-high .392 batting average and driving 108 Mack Men home, the fifth of eleven consecutive seasons he'd flip the third digit on the RBI odometer.

    An included vintage 8x10" photo finds Simmons looking rather pleased by his honor as he proudly displays this certificate for the camera. The artfully rendered 14x19" relic identifies Simmons as the finest center fielder in the game, a distinction certified by the autographs of sportswriters from all ten Major League cities and, of course, by the Sultan of Swat himself. All signatures but the Cincinnati representative (6/10) rate 8/10 or better, and the certificate exhibits a minor degree of handling and storage wear but nothing that could be properly characterized as damage. A marvelous piece linking two key members of the 1934 Tour of Japan. Letter of provenance from Simmons family. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
