MacGregor-Goldsmith "Official 97 League" ball, signed in blue fountain pen across the sweet spot by Babe Ruth. Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA/DNA (signature grade 7; ball grade 5; resulting in a final overall grade of 6). This is a particularly attractive mid- to-high-grade Ruth single-signed ball, with the signature contrasting exceptionally well against the cream-colored surface. A Ruth single-signed ball has been the ideal for collectors and fans alike since Babe Ruth's great popularity and generous nature first made the signed baseball an iconic souvenir. This is an outstanding overall example and one that actually presents at a level higher than its technically accurate grade would suggest. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $5,000. Estimate (open).
