#8286 - Spectacular Babe Ruth Single Signed Official A.L. Barnard Baseball - PSA/DNA “NM/MT 8” LOA & FULL JSA LOA Estimate: $75,000+

“I swing big, with everything I've got. I hit big or I miss big. I like to live as big as I can” -the legendary words of George Herman “Babe” Ruth

No truer words were ever spoken for the immortal George Herman “Babe” Ruth lived his life to the fullest every day, emulating that care free lifestyle in the batter’s box via his seemingly infinite number of colossal swings. Unquestionably, the ‘Bambino” never feared taking his mighty cuts, proving that theory at least 714 times during his storied career with so many of his mammoth home runs testing the furthest confines of any ballpark. No baseball player before or after could possibly hope to match the dynamic charisma and diamond excellence as the incomparable Babe Ruth. His unparalleled accomplishments have set the ultimate benchmark for any professional baseball player, with his remarkable mystique placing him as the idol for an abundance of his aspiring young fans. While there are a myriad of Ruth collectibles to choose from as a testament to his majestic legacy, we cannot imagine any of them reflecting the prestige of an imposing single signed baseball. Indeed, any horsehide sphere scripted solely by Babe Ruth on the “sweet spot” resides as not only the arguable pinnacle “Ruthian” keepsake but one of the foremost mementos in the hobby. It is no secret that scripted Ruth baseballs are certainly not rare; however, extremely bold and PSA high-grade single signed specimens are few and far between, especially when the autograph is affixed to an Official American League Barnard Baseball issued during the 1929-1931 era. With that in mind, presented here is an absolutely breathtaking PSA/DNA “NM/MT 8” single signed Babe Ruth Official A.L. horsehide sphere that portrays an “awe-inspiring” “Babe Ruth” script on the ball’s critical sweet spot. The time-defying black fountain pen autograph has been graded a sensational PSA 8 due to its bold quality and consistent ink strength that enables its captivated viewers to see this world-class signature from literally across the room. The highly coveted “E.S. Barnard, Official American League and Reach”stampings have all retained a majority their original print attributes; with the baseball still exhibiting a relatively clean white horsehide surface that likewise grades a stellar PSA 8. The final exclamation point is the tightly wound multi-colored stitching that portrays virtually all of its original factory issued characteristics. Ultra-desirable, high-grade Official A.L. Barnard single-signed Ruth balls stand as one of the foremost collectibles in our illustrious hobby, with their elevated pricing points virtually increasing on a daily basis. We cannot imagine a finer artifact to capture of this “greater than life” legend than one of his premier single-signed baseballs, depicting a mammoth-like bold black fountain pen “Babe Ruth” script. Simply stated, there aren’t enough aesthetically pleasing/high-grade autographed Babe Ruth baseballs to accommodate the countless number of enthusiasts who painstakingly seek one of these iconic treasures. The “Sultan of Swat” unquestionably stands alone at the top of our National Pastime’s chart with regard to his unequivocal stature, and ironically, it is his high-grade “single-signed” baseballs that likewise reside as his most coveted mementos. Courtesy of our esteemed consigner, you are now afforded a golden opportunity to capture one of those quintessential examples, and synonymous with the Bambino’s Goliath like power, hit a colossal home run of your own by placing the final bid on this exalted heirloom!Full PSA/DNA “NM/MT 8” LOA; Full JSA/James Spence LOA
