    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball. The single-season stamping format of the provided OAL (Barnard) ball finds the Bambino at the height of his powers and global acclaim, enjoying a victory lap following his sixty home run season that would conclude with a second straight Yankees sweep of the Fall Classic. As always, Ruth claims the sweet spot of the solo sphere, his black fountain pen ink losing none of its strength through nine decades of storage. His distinctive John Hancock thunders at 9/10 strength, the leather hide of the baseball toned to an even, tobacco shade by age and perhaps even game use, providing the exciting prospect that this may have been one of the fifty-four home runs struck by Ruth during this World Championship campaign. A few scratches in the leather appear near the ball's stamping, and thus are not visible when the autograph is displayed. A marvelous representation of the hobby's essential building block. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
