Blog Homepage \ Vintage Collectibles \ Pristine Babe Ruth Ball
One of the classic names in baseball as well as baseball card collecting has always been Babe Ruth. Whether it’s kids discussing the Babe in a movie or a couple baseball fans talking about the best players of all time, Babe Ruth’s name has long been a conversation point. One card that has always been highly desired is the Bambino’s 1933 Goudey #53.
Another highly desired baseball collectible is the autographed Babe Ruth ball. With a classic signature that really stands out, these balls are few and far between. Recently I saw some information on a pristine ball going to auction. The ball was signed in August of 1947 and really looked as it was described, pristine. The ball belonged to a Dr. Carvel Lincoln and was acquired at the age of 16 during a dinner banquet for an American Legion Baseball Team.
If you could have an autographed baseball of any baseball great, past or present, who would it be?

Don Mattingly, #23 of N.Y. Yankees fame. He was one of my favorites growing up, side-burns and all! Of course, having a mint Babe Ruth signed baseball would be a dream for any collector as well!
Donny Baseball, very interesting.
