As legendary as Babe Ruth's "called shot" homer in the 1932 World Series is, we find it equally exciting that the 1932 New York Yankees fielded a record nine Hall of Famers. Time to get very excited for the offered 1932 Yankees team-signed baseball, which boasts autographs from all (9) of the Hall of Famers. Made by Spalding, this model "No. 3RC Babe Ruth Home Run Special" ball (VG-EX) hosts (22) 1932 World Series champions Yankees autographs, under a moderate layer of shellac. Applied in black or blue ink by means of a steel-tip fountain pen, these highly prized autographs remain readily discernible. With deference to ink breaks/weakening caused by sporadic erosion of the shellac, the signatures range ("5" to "7") in strength. Full photo LOA from JSA.
