Red-stitched baseball signed by New York Yankee teammates and fellow Hall of Famers Lou Gehrig and Lefty Gomez. Both signatures have been scripted in black fountain pen and appear together on the same side panel. Gehrig's signature grades "6" overall, while Gomez's is slightly stronger, grading "7." Gomez and Gehrig were teammates on the Yankees from 1930 through 1939, so this ball dates from sometime during that ten-year span. The ball is heavily soiled with a few moderate abrasions (not affecting the signatures). The manufacturer's stampings are no longer legible. In Good condition overall. Full LOA from Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication and Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
