    Description

    1943-45 Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA EX-MT+ 6.5. A fine example of the hobby's most fundamental building block in terms of display appeal, investment potential, and universal recognition. No American sports collection can claim completion with a Sultan single.

    Babe Ruth's timeless autograph appears large and bold across the sweet spot of this OAL (Harridge) baseball in blue steel-tip fountain pen. Always working overtime to satisfy his fans to the fullest, the Bambino went over the "B" and "R" to ensure boldness after the ink didn't jettison effectively on his initial strokes. "U.S." stamping in blue on the panel above the league stamp was one of the variations instituted by Reach to designate baseballs which were intended for the U.S. armed forces during World War II.

    The experts at PSA/DNA have provided a full grading letter on this exemplar with marks of 7/10 for the autograph, 6/10 for the ball, and an overall grade of 6.5/10. Their strict grading criteria and authentication competency will allow bidders to proceed confidently and without reservation. Here is a chance to own an attractive, verified exemplar without a super hefty price tag. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA,
    EX-MT+ 6.5. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
