1933 New York Yankees Team-Signed Baseball with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig (and Seven Other Hall of Famers!)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $2,643.75

Official American League (Harridge) ball signed in black fountain pen by twenty-two members of the 1933 New York Yankees: Babe Ruth (sweet spot, "5/6"), Gehrig ("5"), Dickey, Gomez, McCarthy (clubhouse signature, on ball label), Pennock, Ruffing, Lazzeri, Sewell, Combs, Lary, MacFayden, Allen, Crosetti, Farrell, Jorgens, Van Atta, Moore, Brown, Devens, Chapman, and Walker. A clubhouse signature of Ruth appears on a side panel. The year "1932" is written on a side panel in black ink. Despite that designation, the signatures on this ball clearly date it to 1933. Signatures range in grade from "3" to "8," averaging "5/6." This is an amazing ball in that forty percent of the players featured here were eventually elected to the Hall of Fame. In fact, the 1933 Yankees are tied with only the 1932 Yankees for having the most future Hall of Fame players on its roster (9). The ball is lightly toned and displays areas of light discoloration (one of which touches upon the Ruth signature). Very Good condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,643.75
