Is there any more iconic piece in sports collecting than a single-signed Babe Ruth ball? An autographed Ruth ball has become the cornerstone of any advance collection; a thing of instant recognition even outside the hobby – note its role in the smash hit movie “The Sandlot.” This example offered here is among the most sought after as the ball is a 1943-1947 William Harridge Reach Official American League ball. Official league balls are most coveted for Ruth signatures, as they are the balls used by the major league teams and not a children’s or amateur grade ball. The Babe has characteristically signed his name evenly spaced and positioned on the sweet spot in sharp black ink. The original Reach stamping has almost deferentially faded slightly to give more visual prominence to Ruth’s signature. The ball shows overall toning and some scuffing, perhaps from game use. The leather has taken on a warm hue over the decades, allowing the Babe’s signature an added pop. This classic Babe Ruth single signed ball comes with an LOA from PSA/DNA (AH01131) for the signature.
