Presented here is one of the most unique artifacts deriving from the legendary slugging partnership that established the Bronx as the center of the baseball world. This orange sphere was designed to represent the citrus crop that surrounded the Yankees' spring training home of St. Petersburg, Florida. Accompanying this rare artifact is a removed scrapbook page featuring one-of-a-kind snapshots of Ruth and Gehrig getting ready for the 1932 season in which the Yankees would win yet another World Championship. A third picture is a panoramic view of the practice field, with Ruth at the plate and Gehrig at his customary first base position. The pictures measure approximately 2 ¾ x 4 ½ inches each.

Both Ruth and Gehrig signed their distinctive signatures on the top of the wooden pieces. Both greats signed their names in black marker and are solid. This is truly a unique piece of history celebrating the beginnings of a World Series title season. Thee are many baseballs that have Ruth and Gehrig signatures, but this is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind item signed by two of the most iconic names in history. There is a letter of provenance from Deane Dudley, whose father received these autographs and took the photos. The signatures come with LOAs from PSA/DNA (V12415) and JSA (Y38924).
