Listing Details

Earlier style OAL Harridge red and blue stitched ball, this has mild toning and slight general wear, this is a nice ball. Scarce ball, this offers signatures from 20 team members. The key here is a super bold Lou Gehrig in his usual spot at the bottom of a side panel and a very classic and solid Babe Ruth on the sweet spot. The signature of Jim Weaver precisely dates this as a 1931. There are seven HOFers on the ball. Other better signatures include Tony Lazzeri (D'1946 at age 42), Earle Combs, Arthur Fletcher (D'50), Joe Sewell, Ben Chapman and the rare Jimmy Burke. This team won 94 games but that was not enough the beat out the A's that year. Four signatures are clubhouse according to JSA: Pennock, Pipgras, Ruffing and Johnson. Quality Ruth/Gehrig Yankee team balls have been on fire in recent years, it will be interesting to see where this little treasure ends up. JSA LOA (full).
