(LOT 12)
Outstanding Babe Ruth Single-Signed Baseball" - Full PSA/DNA & Beckett LOAs

"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way" - the iconic words of George Herman "Babe" Ruth No truer words were ever spoken for the immortal George Herman "Babe" Ruth lived his life to the fullest every day, emulating that care free lifestyle in the batter's box via his seemingly infinite number of colossal swings. Unquestionably, the 'Bambino" never feared taking his mighty cuts, proving that theory at least 714 times during his storied career with so many of his mammoth home runs testing the furthest confines of any ballpark.

No baseball player before or after could possibly hope to match the dynamic charisma and diamond excellence as the incomparable Babe Ruth. His 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. While there are a myriad of Ruth collectibles to choose from as a testament to his majestic legacy, we cannot imagine any of them reflecting the ultimate prestige of an imposing single signed baseball. Indeed, any horsehide sphere scripted solely by Babe Ruth on the "sweet spot" not only resides as the arguable pinnacle "Ruthian" keepsake, but one of the foremost mementos in the hobby.

It is no secret that scripted Ruth baseballs are certainly not rare; however, single-signed imposing specimens seldom surface for the taking. Presented here is a superb PSA/DNA single-signed Babe Ruth "Official League" horsehide sphere that portrays an "awe-inspiring" "Babe Ruth" script on the ball's critical sweet spot. Signed in black fountain pen, the autograph clearly portrays "Near-Mint" strength, with the relatively clean white ball and red stitching retaining a significant number of their factory issued attributes. The "Lefty Gomez Official League Ball" stamp is clearly intact, and with the exception of some negligible toning/foxing on the east panel (not visible when viewing the Babe Ruth signature), no obtrusive flaws are evident.

Simply stated, bold Babe Ruth single-signed baseballs with relatively clean white panels are few and far between. What better collectible to seize of this "greater than life" legend than one of his exalted scripted baseballs, for there aren't enough aesthetically pleasing single-signed Babe Ruth baseballs to accommodate the countless number of enthusiasts who painstakingly seek one of these majestic treasures. Courtesy of Memory Lane and our revered consigner, you are now afforded a golden opportunity to capture one of hobby's stellar examples, and synonymous with the Bambino's Goliath like power, hit a colossal home run of your own by capturing this timeless keepsake! - Full PSA/DNA LOA; Full Beckett LOA
