1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball

Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,740.00

Official American League (Johnson) baseball is signed by Babe Ruth on the sweet spot and by Lou Gehrig on the side panel just above William Harridge's stamped signature. This is a low-grade Ruth/Gehrig ball, with the Ruth signature grading "2" and Gehrig "1" on a scale of "1 to 10," but both signatures are legible. There is evidence of a faded signature on a side panel. This ball almost certainly dates precisely from 1927. This ball was originally part of the Barry Halper Collection and was sold in the Internet portion of that historic sale. It has been consigned directly from the original buyer and is accompanied by the COA from the Halper Internet auction. The ball has some light scuffing. Overall in Good condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,740.00
