Exceptional 1920s Spalding Babe Ruth "Home Run Special" brand baseball signed on the sweet spot by Babe Ruth.  The red-and-blue stitched balls were the most popular retail baseballs of their era, manufactured to the identical specifications as official baseballs, and bearing the endorsement of the game's most popular player.  Well-worn with surface wear and toning on each panel, the signature is clean and legible, despite some fading and soiling evident.  The stamping is similar, legible with some fading and surface wear.  A quality Babe Ruth signature on a Ruth-endorsed ball from the prime of his career.  Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
