VSA Auction Ending April 6th 2017
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This lot features a Spalding King of the Diamond baseball signed by Babe Ruth. The ball has been dated the ball on the side panel "New Bern NC 12/2/27". Ruth completely dominated his sport and era more than any other athlete in history of professional sports. The Babe was a pitcher for the first 5 years of his career and actually won the the first of his 12 American League Home Run Title with 11 HR's in 1918 while hitting part time on game that he pitched! Ruth began playing and hitting everyday in 1920 and his HR total rocketed to 54 when other "Home Run Hitters" from the era would end the year in single digits. There are no signature removals. Babe Ruth's signature remains the most sought after autograph in baseball history and this is a nice example from his most memorable year both fro an individual and team perspective.
