With an expanding waistline which vastly out measured his paltry batting average, the lowly 1935 Boston Braves was the final resting home for the majestic Babe Ruth. In one final moment of glory, the Bambino joined forces with Lou Gehrig and Dizzy Dean in inscribing the offered multi-signed baseball with (20) autographs. The Spalding Star sphere with red stitching is penned across the panels in black ink with the endorsements ranging in grade from "unreadable" to (6). Despite uniform soiling and scattered spots of surface abrasions, the sphere still holds the endorsements nicely. Featured are West Panel: Maranville (d.1954, 2); East Panel: Gehrig (d.1941, 4); North Panel: P. Dean (6), Ruth (d.1948, 6, with deference to abrasion to second b; South Panel: D. Dean (6) and Berger. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
