A superior example of the "Bambino's" signature, scripted boldly in black fountain pen, appears on the side panel of this "Pioneer League" ball. The rare addition of his non-personalized salutation “Sincerely” prompted the Bambino to deviate from his standard sweet spot position, to command the entirety of the side panel of the presented sphere. The experts at PSA/DNA have assigned a 7/10 rating for the exceptionally strong "Sincerely, Babe Ruth" inscription. The Pioneer League baseball itself garnered a 2/10, however the overall aesthetic quality, as seen in our detailed images, far surpasses this strict technical assessment. A Babe Ruth single signed baseball is a piece of Americana that transcends the field of sports memorabilia. In terms of overall presentation quality, this specimen easily ranks in the upper echelon of Ruth singles offered publicly in recent years.

Full Grading (VG-EX+ 4.5) LOA from PSA/DNA.
