Babe Ruth and Ted Williams Signed Baseball

Babe Ruth and Ted Williams Signed Baseball

This historic sphere has never seen the light of day. Our consignor is fortunate to have been the sole possessor of the ball since his father gave it to him some 60 years ago! Not to mention the ink signatures from two of the most vital athletes in the history of Major League baseball on its leather surface. Its vintage origins date back to the golden age of baseball. Our consignor’s father obtained the ball and the signatures from a Boston Red Sox charitable event, at which various Red Sox alumni were present - including the most legendary Babe Ruth and Ted Williams. This event was in all likelihood held in Natick (where the ball was manufactured and also the place where our consignor’s uncle lived at the time). This sacred sphere was put away by our consignor’s father until its value was able to be fully appreciated. Ruth’s sweet spot signature is among the most desirable types of ink signatures from this baseball god - done in a dark blue ink, it grades a strong “8” out of a possible 10. Williams’ signature on the panel grades just slightly lower, a “7”. The non-official ball exhibits a light and even cream-colored tone and its only blemish is a light scuff to the right of Ruth’s signature, most likely the result of previous game use. Other signatures on the ball include Dom DiMaggio and Rabbit Maranville for a total of 5 signatures. This tremendous piece is just now seeing the light of day for the first time since its origin and comes with an LOA from our consignor.
