Starting in 1920, a new era would being in baseball history. Babe Ruth would be sent from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees in trade, a trade that is still questioned to this day. Essentially ending Ruth's pitching career, the Yankees thought it to be best that he focus on hitting (and we'd say that worked out well for him). Relics from Ruth's earliest playing days with the Red Sox are extremely rare given he wasn't yet at super-star status. This tremendous offering embodies a youthful Babe Ruth signature on the sweet spot during the humble start of his career with the Sox. In black steel tip, the "Babe Ruth" autograph has stood the test of time on this Official National League (Heydler) sphere dating from 1918-1919 (the beginning of Heylder's era as President and end of Ruth's era with the Sox). Overall in fine condition, the ball exhibits light coat of shellack, and a layer of toning has surrounded the sphere. None of this affects The Babe's superb signature, which stands at near mint strength. Please note that there is evidence of indecipherable writing in an unknown hand on the south panel. Authenticated by PSA/DNA with a full letter of authenticity.
