RR Autograph Auctions Official Reach American League

Official Reach American League (Ban Johnson) baseball signed in blue ink on the sweet spot by Babe Ruth and two side panels by Lou Gehrig, Bob Meusel, and Tony Lazzeri. The signatures are light but legible, with the Lazzeri extremely light but visible above the Ban Johnson stamp, otherwise fine condition. The baseball bears exceptionally bold stampings and is especially bright for its age. A superb example that features the powerful portion of the 1927 Yankees legendary ‘Murderer’s Row’ lineup, the season in which Ruth hit 60 home runs. This baseball can be definitively dated to this fabled year, as 1927 was the only year that the official American League baseball was adorned with these specific stamps and patent markings—and it was not signed later, as Ruth discontinued using quotation marks around his first name the following year. A simply exquisite piece from what is widely considered the greatest team in baseball history. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
