Listing Details

Signed in 1947, offered is a pleasing mid-grade Babe Ruth single signed baseball. Fresh to market, this one is unusual in that it was signed the year before Babe Ruth died (most Ruth singles are from the 1930s). The ball itself is a slightly worn Reach model from 1946. The ball itself is mildly toned and has a nice antique feel. Babe penned an entire panel, signing and inscribing this to a Randall Goff. The autograph of Ruth has no breaks or skips and is a classic exemplar that displays well. Dated July 8, 1947 by Ruth, all of the writing is in his hand. Quality Ruth single, this should attract a lot of interest given the record prices high grade singles have been bringing this year. JSA LOA (full).
