1931 YANKEES TEAM SIGNED BABE RUTH HOME RUN SPECIAL BASEBALL
Twenty-three signatures adorn this special two-color stitched baseball made by Spalding. All signatures were made using black ink and appear uniform in quality, averaging in grade 6/10. Babe Ruth is signed alone on the sweet spot. Lou Gehrig dominates a side panel where he appears signed with other names below a date which appears 9-29-32. The ball is in excellent condition with predominantly light discoloration from handling. Letter of Authenticity provided by James Spence.
