Description

Marvelous circa 1928 baseball signed by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig

Extraordinary circa 1928 Brine's Official League baseball with red-and-blue stitching, boldly signed in fountain pen on the sweet spot, "Babe Ruth," and on a side panel, "Lou Gehrig." Also signed on the upper and lower panels by Ira Flagstead, the starting center fielder for the Boston Red Sox throughout most of the 1920s, and by Foster Herbert 'Steve' Slayton, a right-handed reliever who pitched seven innings for the Red Sox in 1928. Slayton's Society of Baseball Research (SABR) article notes: 'Somewhere there still exists a Fox Movietone News photograph of Steve Slayton posing with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig during a long-ago spring training in Florida.' Displayed in a wooden case beside an Upper Deck 'Baseball Heroes' card of Babe Ruth. In fine condition. A spectacularly well-preserved example of a vintage Ruth-Gehrig baseball—one of the most desirable combinations in all of sports.
