In 1927, Babe Ruth hit 60 home runs, breaking his own record of 59 set in 1921. Lou Gehrig's 47 was the second most in the Major Leagues. Ruth had established an unimaginable long-ball standard and, outdoing that, Gehrig was named the league's Most Valuable Player. Their team lauded as the game's most dominant ever--a popular opinion that remains prevalent to this day. The offensive onslaught seen from Ruth & Gehrig was unlike anything Major League Baseball has ever seen, and has seen since that day. Any/all material relating to this historic period of Yankee dominance remains the pinnacle in the hobby, commanding a premium for good reason. Offered here is an exceptional, quoted, game used, official American League Ban Johnson sphere dating back to the Babes historic 1927 season, baring the Sultan of Swat's ""Babe" Ruth" autograph. Overall in fine condition with even toning & signs of vintage game use. Authenticated by PSA/DNA with a full letter of authenticity.
