Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Signed 1928 Official American League Baseball JSA COA
In the history of baseball there has never been a power due to match the output and sheer popularity as Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. From 1925 through 1934, the two sluggers appeared back-to-back in the Yankees number 3 and 4 spots, striking fear into every pitcher who had to face them. Though the 1927 Yankees team is often regarded as the best club to ever take the field, the Ruth-Gehrig combo really became dominant in the years following 1927. In 1930 the Babe hit .359 and led the American League in home runs with 49 as well as on-base percentage, walks, slugging and total bases. Gehrig batted .379 and belted 41 homers as well as led the league in RBI, total bases and plate appearances. One would be hard pressed to find two teammates who so completely dominated the offensive leadership categories like Ruth and Gehrig did in 1930.
This Official 1928 E.S. Barnard American League ball has been signed by the two Yankees stars in blue pen. Ruth has taken his customary spot on the ball’s sweet spot while Gehrig has signed just to the left of his teammate. The placement of the two signatures in such close proximity enables the ball to be positioned so that both legends’ names are visible simultaneously. The ball shows overall toning from age but remains white and the two-tone stitching of the Reach ball is bright. A classic signed ball that captures two of the greatest stars of the game at the very height of their careers. The ball comes with a LOA from JSA (Z98593).
