Description


Sensational and extremely desirable official Jim Kelly League baseball signed in black fountain pen on the sweet spot. In very good condition, with a slight brush to first name of Ruth’s signature, a uniform shade of overall toning, with a few areas of heavier toning, mainly to panel underneath Ruth’s signature, with a few small spots lightly affecting Ruth’s signature. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the grandson of Butch ‘Waldo’ Zander, who originally obtained the signatures as a pitcher for the Dayton Yellow Jackets in 1928, during his MVP amateur season. Letter reads, in part: “On September 14th, 1928…the National Baseball Federation presented Waldo Zander with the MVP award…In attendance was Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig who congratulated him on his performance and signed his game ball.” Also accompanied by a letter of authenticity from James Spence. Undoubtedly the most sought-after double-signed combination in baseball, with exceptional provenance from the heyday of Murderer’s Row. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
