20's SIGNIFICANLTY AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALL
Two-color stitched official American League Barnard ball signed with twenty signatures researched to the late twenties. Signers include affiliates to both National and American Leagues. Half of the autographs are light almost beyond recognition such as G. Alexender, Harntett, and Rixey. Some are illegible. Signatures grading higher include: "Babe" Ruth 6/10, Lou Gehrig 4/10, Ty Cobb 1/10, and Joe McCarthey 7/10. Frank Frisch and Joe Bottomley both 6/10 appear together on the sweet spot. The ball itself is in excellent condition with some light soiling due to age.

Please note that in our estimation the Babe Ruth autograph on this lot is a "Secretarial" signature.
