Official National League (Frick) ball signed by Babe Ruth. As is customary, Ruth's blue fountain-pen signature has been scripted across the sweet spot and grades "5." Ruth's signature has been coated with a layer of protective shellac that displays a small flake/chip in the area of the "th" in "Ruth." The ball is moderately toned, with a few minor abrasions, and the manufacturer's stampings are badly faded. In Good to Very Good condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $500. Estimate $2,000++.
