Babe Ruth was the ultimate hero of a sport with more than its fair share of heroes - a giant of monumental swagger and breathtaking talent who set the standard by which all others would be judged. His position atop baseball in general is rightly proportionate with his position in the field of baseball collectibles. In the latter field, no object is a greater embodiment of his persona than a single signed baseball. This OAL (Harridge) ball appears unused, hailing from the 1940’s. Ruth's blue-ink, sweet spot signature is large and vibrant, rating 7-8 out of 10. A minimal amount of natural toning and minor scuffing is visible and manufacturer’s stampings are fairly light. It’s overall presentation quality puts it in the upper echelon of single signed Ruth balls seen in the hobby. Includes a full LOA from PSA/DNA.
