Appearing as though it recently emerged from a time capsule, this near-white official NL (Frick) ball boasts an example of the Bambino's signature that is unparalleled. Its superb preservation symbolizes the impact of Ruth's gesture on its original recipient, whose good fortune it was to have a once in a lifetime encounter with the Babe. The manufacturer's stamping is as dark as the day the ball was produced with only slight foxing. Its original Spalding wrapper remains, having served to protect it throughout the years. Together with copy of photograph shown. Mint condition. LOA: PSA/DNA.
