Far more rare than a Ruth single, a Gehrig single or a '28 Yankee team ball, this dual-signed sphere is the ultimate treasure from the zenith of Babe and Lou's dominance. Collectively leading the league in HRs, doubles, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and total bases, the pair powered the Yanks to their second-straight championship, capped by a World Series sweep of the Cardinals. Their Fall Classic stat lines are beyond belief: Ruth - .625 BA, 10 hits, 3 HRs, 3 doubles, 4 RBIs; Gehrig - .545 BA, 4 HRs, 5 runs, 9 RBIs. Offered is a beautiful, red-and-black-seamed, Goldsmith "Official League" ball with bold stampings and a period notation from that immortal year: "1928." Ruth's sweet-spot signature rates "8-9" strength and Gehrig's east-panel example ranges from "6-8" averaging "7". Light surface soiling/toning. Full LOA from JSA. This item has a reserve (estimated value: $50,000-$60,000).
