Description

A bright spot in the midst of sour days following scandal, a constant at the dreaded dawn of depression, an icon with numerous monikers coined after him, George Herman "Babe" Ruth was not just a great baseball player, he is the quintessential American icon. With an enduring stature, overt charisma and abiding legacy, Ruth's greatness and performance have yet to be paralleled. Signed boldly on the sweet spot of a period 1925-1927 Reach OAL Ban Johnson baseball is the 2-1/2" signature of Babe Ruth. Never one to shy away from an autograph request, "The Bambino" carefully scripted his signature in green with a steel-tipped fountain pen. The signature displays nicely, grading a ("5"), while the period baseball reveals moderate usage and toning grading a ("6"). The wear does not impact the slugger's prominent signature. A superlative exemplar of this preeminent figure. This piece is accompanied by a LOA from JSA and a LOA from PSA/DNA.
