Description: Babe Ruth autographed baseball c.1930. Toned and clear coated baseball with red and blue stitching that appears to be an official AL ball although stampings are unclear. Black fountain pen signature displays on a side panel rating 6 out of 10. The "R" and "h" in Ruth each appear to have a very small portion of period enhancement or ink "pooling" quite likely by Ruth in either case. Date of June 20, 1930 written underneath in different hand. Hank Aaron has signed an adjacent side panel with date of "5/29/1974" written in another hand. Aaron signature rates 6 out of 10. The baseball was interestingly originally acquired by the father of former Major League pitcher Kent Tekulve. Includes full LOA from JSA and letter of provenance from Kent Tekulve: Ball: VG, Signatures: VG/EX-EX
