This is the nicest 1930 NY Yankees team baseball that we have ever handled. OAL Barnard red and blue stitched baseball signed by 25 members of the 1930 NY Yankees including a gorgeous Babe Ruth on the sweet spot rating an 8-9 and Lou Gehrig directly to the left of Ruth on the west panel rating an 8-9. Other signatures include Tony Lazzeri, Earle Combs, Bob Shawkey, Bill Dickey, Chas Ruffing, Chas O’Leary (coach), Lyn Lary, Bennie Bengough, Art Jorgens, Hank Johnson, Ben Chapman, Harry Rice, Ed Wells (faded), George Pipgras, Ken Holloway, Sam Byrd, Herb Pennock (faded), Jimmie Reese, Lou McEvoy, Ownie Carroll, Dusty Cooke, Bubbles Hargrave and Art Fletcher (coach). All signatures are done in black steel tip fountain pen and rate an overall 8-9. The ball is absolutely gorgeous, white with the slightest of toning/spotting. Jimmy Spence of JSA told us that this is the nicest 1930 NY Yankees team signed ball he has ever seen and is far nicer than any exemplars in his data base. Accompanied by a full LOA from JSA. It is further accompanied by a LOA from our consignor which states, in part, “Years ago, my grandmother worked for Miss Winnie Wyant (companion of Col. Jacob Ruppert, owner of the Yankees)...at some point, Winnie gifted these two baseballs (also the lot number 4 in this auction). She explained that Ruppert would visit the Yankees clubhouse and ask the players to sign baseballs to give to friends”. Originally sourced from Jacob Ruppert, nothing short of phenomenal.
