Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $8,700.00

Presented here is one of the true "gems" of the hobby: a Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig signed baseball. The offered example, an Anchor Brand "Professional" ball, features Ruth's signature resting upon its customary place of honor, the sweet spot. On the panel directly above, sits the signature of Gehrig. Ruth's signature has been penned in blue fountain pen and grades "6/7." Gehrig's signature, scripted in black fountain pen, is somewhat stronger, grading a solid "8." The ball is lightly soiled and has a few minor abrasions that do not affect the visual appeal afforded by the two signatures. Ideally, the placement of the signatures is close enough that they can both be viewed at the same time when the ball is properly displayed. According to the original owner, this ball was signed by the duo during a barnstorming tour in Syracuse, New York. This is an exceptional example of the most desirable of all dual-signed baseballs, beautifully displaying signatures of the most legendary "one-two" punch in baseball history. LOAs from James Spence/JSA and Steve Grad, Mike Gutierrez & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
