Superb Signed 1927 "Murderer's Row" Ball Highlighted by The Babe & The Iron Horse!

 

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 longball 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. A choice collectible that highlights the historic legacy of the 1927 Yankee team, this Official Reach American League (Ban Johnson) baseball has been 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! Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.
