Spectacular Circa 1935 Babe Ruth Single-Signed Ball with Extraordinary Signature

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $26,437.50

This Goldsmith “King of the Diamond” baseball is boldly signed by Babe Ruth ("9/10") in extremely dark black fountain pen across the sweet spot. This is the finest Ruth signed ball in the Barry Halper collection. The signature can not only be seen across the room, which is why Barry kept it. This signature can be seen across a football field! We have never seen another Ruth signature on a ball that is quite as impressive as this example in terms of boldness and thus possessing a greater display value. The ball itself is also very impressive. All of the manufacturers’ stampings are bold and distinct. The only imperfections are some extremely light soiling and a very small brown spot on the North panel. Overall in Excellent condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$5,000+. SOLD FOR $26,437.50
