There is no surname coupling more synonymous with triumph than any pair in the annals of baseball than "Ruth" and "Gehrig" as the famed duo tamed American League and World Series opponents with unprecedented regularity during their legendary careers in the Bronx. While a falling-out brought an abrupt finish to what had been a strong friendship just before Ruth's departure, the two remain inseparable likenesses in American culture – first, as fence-clearing barnstorming comrades and, in the end, in the unforgettable embrace as Gehrig neared his demise. The offered sphere acts as an attractive canvas for the signatures of both Hall of Fame New York Yankees’ legends.

Presented here is a Reach Official League ball that features bold stampings and vibrant, alternating red and green laces. Light toning affects portions of the ball, but not to the detriment of the coveted autographs. In his customary occupancy of the sweet spot, Babe Ruth's black ink autograph projects with satisfying strength. Compliant with "second billing" on an adjacent west panel, Lou Gehrig has signed his name in similar quality as his more celebrated teammate. A superb duo, with either scripting displaying well as a single, if desired. Best yet, this historic ball has been authenticated by two companies – an LOA from PSA/DNA (U14720), who graded Ruth’s signature a NM-MT 8 and Gehrig’s signature a NM 7 and an overall grade of NM-MT 7.5. Additionally, there is a full LOA from JSA (Y20480).

Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Dual Signed Official League Baseball (PSA/DNA NM+ 7.5 & JSA)
