Lot # 1027 (of 1594)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Single-Signed Ball

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $21,150.00

Reach “Official League Ball” signed by Babe Ruth in blue fountain pen across the sweet spot. Ruth’s signature has been beautifully scripted and grades “9.” The ball is lightly toned and displays a few extremely minor tiny areas of light discoloration, one of which touches upon the “e” in “Babe.” All of the manufacturer’s stampings are bold and legible. This is an outstanding single-signed Babe Ruth ball, particularly ideal for display, which is exactly why Barry Halper (who over the years had literally hundreds of Ruth-signed balls) chose to keep this example. Excellent condition. From the Barry Halper Collection. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $21,150.00
