One was a boisterous playboy, the other a quiet introvert, but they shared a preternatural gift for the long ball and three World Championship celebrations during their fruitful partnership. It's the most essential "duo" ball in the collecting hobby, and they have both signed this Official American League (Harridge) baseball. The Babe takes up his standard sweet spot position in black fountain pen ink, with a faded Gehrig at the western panel. The ball exhibits general handling wear but presents nicely and the autographs still read beautifully. A thin layer of shellack has been applied for preservation. A fine relic , which is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after selections in the market. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA).
Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Dual-Signed OAL (Harridge) Baseball c. 1934-39 (JSA)
