See a Picture of this Item 405 Babe Ruth inscribed 42nd Home Run baseball of the 1926 season. Babe Ruth appeared in only 98 games in 1925. Plagued by a season-long ailment dubbed "the bellyache heard round the world," Ruth had his worst season as a Yankee, finishing with a less than Ruthian .290 average and 25 home runs. With many sportswriters suggesting that Ruth's best days were behind him, he reemerged in 1926 intent on quieting his critics. Ruth proceeded to lead the Yankees to the 1926 AL title, batting .372 with 47 home runs and 146 RBIs. The offered baseball was hit by Babe Ruth for his 42nd home run of the 1926 campaign and represents the 351st clout of his career. The smash occurred at DetroitÆs Navin Field on September 11, 1926 with Ruth connecting on a pitch from Tigers pitcher Lil Stoner in the top of the ninth inning with two runners on base. The three-run homer was the difference in the game with the Yankees winning by a score of 10-8. The grandfather of the consignor was in the bleachers that day and watched the ball sail over the outfield wall and out of sight. At the conclusion of the game a half inning later, he exited the stadium through the outfield as was customary in that era. Just outside the park, he noticed a small boy holding a baseball standing next to a Detroit mounted police officer. He asked the boy about the ball and was told that it was Ruth's home run ball that he had chased down and retrieved a few moments earlier. The policeman confirmed the boy's statement and the gentleman made the boy an offer to purchase the ball. The offer was accepted in the presence of the officer and the gentleman quickly sought out a sportswriter friend of his that he knew was on hand for the game. Through the sportswriter, he was able to obtain Babe Ruth's signature and notation on the baseball referencing it as being the ball hit for a home run that day. The blue and red stitched Johnson AL ball features Ruth's signature on the sweet spot, and his inscription on the adjacent left panel, "42 Home Run, 1926." Both the signature and inscription rate 6-7 out of 10. Typical of a game used ball, it shows some scuffing and general soiling, remaining in very good condition overall. Today it survives as one of few self-documented Ruth home run balls known, dating from one of his most prolific seasons. Includes a family letter of provenance and an additional LOA from JSA. Ball: VG ($15,000-$20,000) $17,000.00

See a Picture of this Item 409 Lou Gehrig bronze statue. Exceptional quality figural bronze statue of Lou Gehrig batting was sculpted by artist R.P. Daus in 1987.

The offered bronze incorporates a full batters box and home plate area rendering. Marked by "The Sporting News" and "WWS Inc" on the bottom edge of the bronze itself. 16" tall. Daus' work is highly regarded as evidenced by the "Fireman's Memorial" sculpture which stands outside of City Hall in St. Louis: NM ($2,500-$3,500) $2,900.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 410 1939 World Series Yankees/Reds autographed baseball. Off-white Harridge AL ball is signed by (14) members of the 1939 World Champion New York Yankees and (10) members of their World Series opponent, the Cincinnati Reds. Yankees signatures include Gehrig, DiMaggio, McCarthy, Dickey, Ruffing, Gomez, Rolfe, Crosetti, Gordon, Keller, Dahlgren, Pearson, Selkirk and Hadley. Reds signatures include Lombardi, McKechnie, Derringer, Frey, Vander Meer, Berger, Riggs, McCormick, Myers and Goodman. One signature is unidentified. Signatures range from 5-8 out of 10, averaging 7/10. The ball itself shows light handling wear with no significant blemishes. The key attribute to this important ball is the presence of Gehrig's authentic signature. In the 16 years preceding the 1939 season, Gehrig averaged 38 homeruns and 150 RBIs. But through the first 8 games of the 1939 season, Gehrig batted .143 with 1 RBI. Unknowingly suffering from ALS, Gehrig voluntarily benched himself on May 2, 1939, putting an end to his record consecutive-game streak of 2,130. Two months later on July 4, Gehrig would make his famous Farewell speech at Yankee Stadium. No longer on the Yankees active roster, Gehrig's health was diminishing by the time the Yankees played in the 1939 World Series. Gehrig appeared with the Yankees as an honorary team captain, but rarely signed autographs, making this ball an exceptional rarity. Also among the ball's considerable attributes is the ideal dual placement of opposing mangers McKechnie and McCarthy on the sweet spot. Includes LOA from JSA: EX/MT ($3,000-$4,000) $4,600.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 411 1933 American League All-Star team autographed baseball.

Signatures include Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Lazzeri, Dickey, Collins, Simmons, Gehringer, Ferrell, Cronin, Averill, Gomez, and Mack (manager). Sigs range from 2-8 out of 10. Foxx is among the best (8/10) with Ruth and Gehrig each rating 3-4 out of 10. The American League team captured the first All-Star game by a score of 4-2 behind Babe Ruth's home run which was his first and only home run hit in All-Star game play. A notation written on the sweet spot beneath Ruth's signature reads "Signed at the Century of Progress Chicago 1933". Includes LOA from JSA: Ball: VG-EX, Signatures: Range FR-NM/MT ($3,000-$5,000) $4,200.00

See a Picture of this Item 413 Exceptional 1927 Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig autographed baseball. Off white red and black stitched Wilson "Official League" baseball is signed by Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Edgar "Dud" Branom. A superb example of Ruth's signature occupies the sweet spot in vibrant blue ink rating a resounding 9 out of 10. Gehrig is positioned on the panel above rating 9 out of 10 in boldness with light feathering to "Lou". An additional signature of journeyman minor leaguer and PCL player, Dud Branom, appears beneath Gehrig. A date notation adjacent to Ruth's signature in an unknown hand reads "Oct. 15th, 1927", just seven days after the Yankees completed their sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates to capture the World Series title and complete the most dominant season in baseball history. The date notation and the presence of the signature of Branom, who played for Portland of the PCL in 1927, suggests that the ball was signed during a northwestern stop on Ruth and Gehrig's famed Bustin' Babes and Larrupin' Lous barnstorming tour. The ball itself shows minimal evidence of handling with an unblemished creamy-white surface which ideally showcases the pronounced signatures. A facsimile name stamping of minor league president T.J. Hickey is found on a separate side panel. Superb condition exemplar featuring the coveted Ruth/Gehrig signature combo from the most prolific year of their career. Includes LOA from JSA: NM-NM/MT ($10,000-$15,000) $10,500.00
 
See a Picture of this Item 414 Fine Babe Ruth single signed baseball with possible attribution to June 13, 1948 "Babe Ruth Day" at Yankee Stadium.

The ball itself displays period black ink dating of "June 13, 1948" and "August 16, 1948" on respective side panels. Based on the consignor history, period ink dating on the ball, and the dating of the ball stamping, it is believed that the offered exemplar was signed on the date of Babe Ruth's famed final appearance at Yankee Stadium when he addressed his adoring Yankees fans. The additional period black ink date of "Aug. 16, 1948" was later written on the ball to denote the date of Ruth's passing. Very high grade Babe Ruth single signed ball with desirable attribution to one of the more notable moments of the great slugger's life.

See a Picture of this Item 420 Scarce Spalding baseball bat display rack sign c.1915-20. One of only a handful of original surviving exemplars, the offered sign consists of a color lithograph surface applied onto a painted metal circular marquis. Once attached to a Spalding baseball bat rack store display, the double sided sign presents very well retaining fine original color and surface. Several areas of the surface have been professionally inpainted, but they do not affect the integrity of the sign and its originality. The inpainting itself is mostly to the perimeter areas of the design and to some small (approx. 1/2" to 2") areas of flaking to the central areas. Sign remains attached by its original black painted cast iron "L" brackets to the top slat of an original Spalding wooden bat rack. The wooden slat retains a period paper label affixed to one side which reads, "Notice. Spalding Base Ball bats are not guaranteed A.G. Spalding & Bros." The paper label has some flaking to the edges and age toning, but remains clearly visible and fundamentally intact. Wooden slat itself has visible shadowing from its original connection to the frame of the rack with appropriate empty screw holes at the top. Notably scarce Spalding bat rack sign is one of only three such examples that we have encountered: VG-EX ($4,000-$5,000) $4,500.00
