Official American League (Barnard) ball signed in black fountain pen by Babe Ruth across the sweet spot and grades "6/7" overall. Based upon the manufacturer's stampings, this ball dates to either the 1929 or 1930 season (JSA, in its accompanying LOA, identifies it as this era ball). The use of quotation marks around "Babe" clearly dates it prior to 1930. (Ruth stopped using those quotation marks approximately around 1929.) The ball displays light soiling, with a few abrasions, and is in Very Good condition overall. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $2,500.
