Ruth, Babe and Lou Gehrig
Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Signed Baseball.
1927. Rare Official American League Baseball signed by baseball legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, the dynamic duo of Muderers' Row. Signed by Babe Ruth on the sweetspot and Gehrig on the west panel. In very good condition. Ruth and Gehrig were both members of the 1927 New York Yankees baseball team, one of the greatest squads to ever take the field which was referred to affectionately by fans as Murderers' Row for the power of its lineup. The team clinched first place on Labor Day, won a then-AL-record 110 games and took the AL pennant by 19 games.[129] There was no suspense in the pennant race, and the nation turned its attention to Ruth's pursuit of his own single-season home run record of 59 round trippers. Ruth was not alone in this chase. Teammate Lou Gehrig proved to be a slugger who was capable of challenging Ruth for his home run crown; he tied Ruth with 24 home runs late in June. Through July and August, the dynamic duo was never separated by more than two home runs. Gehrig took the lead, 45-44, in the first game of a doubleheader at Fenway Park early in September; Ruth responded with two blasts of his own to take the lead, as it proved permanently--Gehrig finished with 47.
