(LOT 4)
Babe Ruth Single Signed Official League Baseball - Full PSA/DNA LOA Overall 7.5 NM+ with a PSA 8 NM-MT Autograph Grade

"Every now and then some athlete is touched for a moment with a kind of higher level of greatness which they may never achieve again, but at that moment, they were more than life allows such was Babe Ruth's impact on baseball" - the iconic words of the legendary CBS Commentator Heywood Hale Broun We cannot imagine any baseball player who could possibly hope to match the dynamic charisma and diamond excellence as the incomparable Babe Ruth! The "Bambino's" unparalleled accomplishments have set the ultimate benchmark for any professional baseball player, with his remarkable mystique placing him as the idol of a seemingly infinite number of aspiring young fans.

During his unparalleled career, Ruth absolutely loved signing baseballs for his adoring worshipers, taking a seemingly infinite amount of time before and after games to script his name on a horsehide sphere. Arguably, no signed Ruth collectible is more exalted than a single-signed baseball, and this superb PSA authenticated Official League Reach ball scripted by Ruth years ago stands tall as a museum worthy memento due to the hallowed Babe Ruth autograph. Graded a PSA 7.5, the iconic Babe Ruth script has been signed with a blue fountain pen, and presents all attributes of a near-mint autograph, hence receiveing the PSA Auto grade of 8 NM-MT.

The Ball itself is graded 7 NM with the overall grade being a PSA 7.5 NM+. The sheer thought of placing such a hallowed artifact on one's favorite mantelpiece or curio cabinet shelf spurs a "spine tingling" feeling from any sophisticated enthusiast; for no player past, present or future could possibly compete with the Bambino's larger than life persona. The "Babe" exemplifies everything our National Pastime represents at a level that exceeds the game itself. Each passing day his popularity increases profoundly, with avid collectors actively seeking to capture any of his most valuable treasures.

As a testament to his unparalleled power, the great Walter Johnson was once asked if anyone hit the ball harder than Babe Ruth with the "Big Train" responding: "I can't say for sure if Ruth hit the ball the hardest, but his batted balls got smaller a lot faster than anyone"! The Babe has set the ultimate benchmark for all other players to be measured against, justifying why he stands tall as the supreme baseball immortal and embodiment of a National Hero. With that in mind, we cannot imagine a finer "Ruthian" collectible to capture than one of his eye pleasing single-signed baseballs that, synonymous with his hallowed legacy, has withstood the test of time! - Full PSA/DNA LOA.
