Official American League (Harridge) ball signed by Babe Ruth across the sweet spot. Ruth's signature has been scripted in blue fountain pen and grades "6." Despite the fact that the manufacturer's stampings have faded beyond legibility, JSA was still able to identify it as a circa 1942-1945 official American League ball by examining it under a video spectral comparator, which allows for the observation of latent writing and/or markings. The examination also confirmed that no other signatures are present on the ball. The ball displays light soiling and a few minor surface blemishes. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. This is a very presentable mid-grade Ruth ball that would be a fine addition to any collection. Full LOA from Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication and Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $3,000++.
