Oser August 2002
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
A vintage red-stitched 'Official Ball' from an unidentified League, neatly signed by the two greatest Yankee teammates of all time, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Ruth occupies his customary position on the sweet spot with an autograph that is rendered in a fine pen. The signature is a light '2-3' with a scuff above the 'a' in Babe. Gehrig added his immortal mark on an adjacent side panel in an uncommonly large autograph (also '2-3', with wear affecting the now difficult-to-see 'L'). The light cream-colored ball is evenly faded, in overall Excellent condition. With the 20th Century fast receding into history, this combination of excellence on a baseball remains one of the most desirable artifacts in the hobby, and represents an entire era of our National Game. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/MastroNet and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA.
