Lot #6: Babe Ruth Single Signed Baseball (PSA/DNA NM-MT 8)

Description

From 1920 to his death in 1948, no athlete in the world was more recognizable than Babe Ruth. Wherever he went - theaters, restaurants, train stations - the great man was inundated with requests for his autograph. While many athletes today look at signing an autograph as a chore and bother, Ruth felt otherwise. To him, his flawless script on a ball or piece of paper was the least he could do to make a fan happy or bring a smile to a little boy’s face. To him, it just was part of being Babe Ruth. The legend of The Babe, which has only grown over the years, has made a Babe Ruth signed baseball one of the most sought-after sports collectibles.

This offered baseball has one of those flawless Babe Ruth signatures penned boldly across the sweet spot. The ball’s manufacturer is unknown and Ruth’s signature is in blue pen. His bold signature across the sweet spot will make a beautiful display piece and can easily be a cornerstone piece of a collection. The ball displays toning due to age and other markings, none of which deter from the high-quality Ruth signature. This baseball comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (AE71309) and has been graded a NM-MT 8.
