Presented is a fine Babe Ruth single signed baseball. The bright-white Wilson "Official League" American Association baseball signed on the sweet spot by Babe Ruth. This baseball is brand new to the market. The ball is consigned by the family of the original owner, Wilson Sporting Goods executive Harry Braun. Braun met Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig at the Wilson New York City office in the early 1930’s. The logo and stamping on this pleasingly preserved ball date to between 1927 and 1933.

The autograph is a classic post 1927 Ruth signature style. It displays a confident nearly vertical upper bowl on the capital “B” an extended upturned tail on the “e” in Babe with an exaggerated counter in the capital “R” of Ruth. The condition is first-rate and the signature remains very clear. The red and black stitched ball has American Association league president T.J. Hickey stamped on the side panel with the ball retaining fairly uniform overall condition having only minor surface wear to a few areas with slight toning.

This fantastic baseball is the twin to a Lou Gehrig single signed ball (also directly from Braun family) in this auction. Authentication by James Spence Authentication (JSA) and Consignor LOA
