Lot # 1237 (1237 of 1911)   « Previous Lot | Next Lot »

Circa 1930 Lou Gehrig Signed Ball - Displays as a Single!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,920

Official American League (Barnard) ball signed in black fountain pen (grading "5/6") on a side panel by Lou Gehrig. The black fountain-pen signature of Babe Ruth that adorns the sweet spot has been deemed a "clubhouse" version by JSA. Ideally, this ball, which dates from the 1929 to 1931 manufacturing period, displays beautifully as a Gehrig single if so desired. A light layer of protective shellac, which has darkened with age, covers the entire surface and the ball displays a few minor abrasions. In Very Good condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA.

Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,920
