(LOT 1)
Extraordinary Babe Ruth Single-Signed Baseball w/a Miraculous PSA 10 Gem Mint Autograph & Outstanding Provenance Dating it to its Irrefutable July 10, 1947 Signing on "Babe Ruth Day" in Houston, TX! - PSA 10 AUTO LOA

The incomparable George Herman "Babe" Ruth has set the ultimate benchmark for all of his peers to be measured against, substantiating why he stands tall as the embodiment of a National Hero. The late CBS Commentator Heywood Hale Broun once so eloquently noted: "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." No truer words were ever spoken, and they ring loud and clear with hobbyists who actively pursue the finest possible Ruth collectibles.

That said, we cannot imagine a finer "Colossus of Swat" artifact to capture than one of his premier single-signed baseballs that ironically sports the perfect PSA "10" assessment. To the best of our knowledge, only three collections in the world can claim to feature a PSA Authenticated GEM MINT 10 Babe Ruth autograph on a horsehide sphere. Only one of those three intensely sought-after baseballs, the very one featured here, rises above the others because of one key word - "provenance." In today's sports collecting and investing world, the "provenance" concept impacts value as much as perfect centering impacts the value of a vintage card.
