Babe Ruth Signed Baseball
Own a piece of history
The Great Bambino!
Babe Ruth is one of the best baseball players of all time! His Major League Baseball career spanned 22 seasons from 1914 – 1935. He played for some amazing teams like the Boston Braves, Boston Red Sox and most commonly know the New York Yankees.
The story is fascinating! Babe Ruth attended an event at a dinner theatre in Vancouver, named the Pantages Theatre. He was friends with the owner of the Theatre, Kenneth Tallmadge. At this event, Babe Ruth took pictures and signed this ball addressed to the owner Kenneth. It is truly rare that Babe Ruth dated this ball when he signed it, for Babe Ruth this is unheard of!
This amazing piece of history comes with provenance, the Photographs that were taken that night plus additional rare Photographs of Babe Ruth. It even has a yellow paper which is a typed letter from Kenneth to his parents where he talks joyfully about Babe Ruth’s visit to the theatre. This baseball has been in the family since 1926 when it was signed. It is now up for auction for the first time! Own a piece of Baseball history!
