Annually outdrawing their fellow Polo Grounds tenants since Babe Ruth's arrival in 1920, the New York Yankees evoked the ire of New York Giants owner and field boss John McGraw, prompting their eviction from the Harlem venue after the 1922 campaign. Squandering leads in three of four losses, the Yankees were dispatched in five games of the 1922 Fall Classic, as Game 2 ended in a tie. In their final days at the shared stadium, the Yanks did World Series battle against their cross-town rivals.

Babe Ruth was the star of the show for the Yankees, who almost single-handedly turned the fortunes of the franchise, turning it into a juggernaut that ruled the 20th century. Also a key member of the great 1920’s Yankees teams was Bob Meusel. Meusel played left field and right field for 11 Major League Baseball seasons from 1920 through 1930, all but the last for the Yankees. Meusel was noted for his strong outfield throwing arm and often was in the fifth spot in the lineup behind Ruth and Gehrig.

Offered here is a very rare Official League Wilson baseball that has been dual-signed by both Babe Ruth and Bob Meusel. An unusual signed baseball coupling, Ruth has signed his name in black pen across the sweet spot with “Babe” in quotes. On the south panel below Ruth’s distinctive signature, is the autograph of Bob Meusel, also in black pen, and he inscribed “To Jake Isaacson from Bob Meusel Sunday October 15-22”. The ball displays toning and even age wear throughout. The stampings are clear with the Official League mark on the opposite sweet spot displaying an abrasion mark. This comes with a LOA from JSA for Ruth’s and Meusel’s signatures.
