  • — THIS MAY VERY WELL BE THE BOLDEST BABE RUTH AUTOGRAPH ON A BASEBALL,IN EXISTENCE TODAY. I KNOW I PERSONALLY HAVE NOT SEEN A BOLDER RUTH SIGNED BASEBALL

  • — IT’S BEEN REPORTED THAT AFTER HIS PLAYING CAREER WAS OVER, BABE RUTH HAD A SPECIALLY-DESIGNED WIDE-NIB FOUNTAIN PEN SPECIFICALLY MADE FOR SIGNING BASEBALLS. I BELIEVE THAT RUTH USED HIS SPECIAL WIDE-NIB PEN TO SIGN THIS BASEBALL.

  • — JUST LOOK AT IT. I HAVE PERSONALLY NOT SEEN ANOTHER RUTH BALL STILL IN EXISTENCE THAT HAS AS LARGE AND BOLD OF A SIGNATURE AS THIS ONE.

  • — THIS MAY BE ONE OF A KIND…….WIDE NIB SIGNATURE, INCREDIBLY BOLD WITH A VERY LIGHT COAT OF SHELLAC TO PRESERVE THE BOLDNESS

  • — BABE RUTH WAS KNOWN TO APPLY A LOT OF PRESSURE WHEN HE SIGNED BASEBALLS. THESE OLD FOUNTAIN PEN WOULD OFTEN LEAK AS THIS ONE CLEARLY DID WHICH ACCOUNTS FOR SOME SMEARING THAT OCCURRED AS IT WAS SIGNED

  • — UP CLOSE YOU CAN GET A SENSE OF THE OLD AGE OF THE FOUNTAIN PEN INK AS DROPLETS OF THE INK “POOLED” IN AREAS OF THE SIGNATURE

  • — THE AUTOGRAPH HAS BEEN AUTHENTICATED BY PSA/DNA AND THE LOA IS SIGNED BY THE RENOWNED AUTHENTICATOR, STEVE GRAD BEFORE HE MOVED ON TO BECKETT

The baseball that Ruth signed in this listing is “FAIRPLAY AMERICAN LEAGUE”. I don’t have any other information about the ball’s manufacturer.
