Official National League (Heydler) ball signed in blue fountain pen by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and nine members of the circa 1928 St. Louis Cardinals. The signatures of Babe Ruth (grading "4") and Frankie Frisch ("1") appear on the sweet spot. The remaining are those of Lou Gehrig ("4"), Taylor Douthit, Wattie Holm, Earl Smith, Jim Bottomley ("2"), Chick Hafey ("3"), Jimmie Wilson, Clarence Mitchell, and Andy High. Signatures range from "1" to "5," averaging "2/3." This ball was most likely signed at the 1928 World Series, but we must note that all of the players represented here were with their respective clubs in 1929 as well. The ball is moderately toned and soiled, with a few scattered areas of darker discoloration. In Very Good condition overall. Full LOA from Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication and auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
