    1940-42 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. Elite specimen is linked to the earliest years of the 1940's by the unique stamping format of the OAL (Harridge) sphere, a breed responsible for most of the finest Ruth exemplars in the hobby. This particular example officially earns that status through the assessment of the experts at PSA/DNA, who assign grades of 8/10 and 7/10 for the autograph and baseball respectively, adding a half-point for aesthetic appeal to establish the composite rating.

    This is not a lot for the collector merely checking names off of a list, but rather for the most discerning of hobby connoisseurs who understand the inherent value that accompanies top-grade examples. Despite the famous generosity of the Babe which has supplied the modern hobby with thousands of signed baseballs, only the fortunate few are afforded a window into the past such as this, an encounter with a baseball essentially unchanged from its moment in the game's most talented hands. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8.
