(LOT 9)
Spectacular Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed Cut – PSA/DNA Encapsulated

The dynamic duo of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig will forever be considered baseball's greatest "One-Two Punch", with these remarkable players leading the Yankees to three world championships. Their 1927 season is firmly etched in baseball folklore, with their record setting assault on the fences eventually leading to the "Bambino's" unfathomable 60 home runs and Gehrig claiming his first Most Valuable Player award. Virtually every American was now captivated by these incredible sluggers, and their final World Series title in 1932 would see the Sultan of Swat's immortal "Called-Shot" enthrall an adoring Nation.

No wonder some of the most sophisticated autograph enthusiasts painstakingly seek an artifact signed by BOTH of these legendary stars. Unfortunately, a majority of the Ruth/Gehrig signed collectibles only includes solo scripts of either player. Period keepsakes including both their iconic scripts are few and far between, justifying why this remarkable signed 'cut" stands as one of the most highly coveted autographed memento in the collecting community. Indeed, this world-class offering just happens to include eloquent signatures of both Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth, with each autograph sculpted in period style black fountain pen.

Of significant note is the atypical large proportions and boldness of the "Lou Gehrig" script, with a majority of Gehrig's autographs reflecting small and light qualities that were consistent with his tranquil nature. In typical fashion, the hallowed Babe Ruth script reflects the Bambino's typical bold attributes, with both autographs critically reflecting consistent boldness and size, leading to their "8/9" signature strength and breathtaking aesthetics. Measuring approximately 1-3/4" x 4", this Cooperstown worthy signed cut has been authenticated and encapsulated by the prestigious PSA/DNA Company, the final exclamation point for this exalted marvel.

The most advanced autograph collectors are truly aware of the significance of any Ruth or Gehrig signed collectible, let alone one that includes BOTH of these baseball icons. Simply stated, period artifacts signed by both the "Bambino" and "Iron Horse" arguably reside as the most desirable/valuable autographed heirlooms in the hobby. These two slugging icons dominated our National Pastime for nearly a decade, striking an incomparable fear into the hearts of virtually every pitcher they faced, and it is an accepted notion that no two teammates will ever match their coupled batting achievements!
