Mamie Ruth Signed Baseball (Babe Ruth’s sister) – COA JSAGo Back
Out of stock
Presented is an OAL (Brown) baseball autographed by Mamie Ruth. He signed it on the side panel in blue ballpoint pen (“7”). The ball itself shows toning from age. “She inscribed the ball the date 4/23/72, To Bob, Mamie Ruth Babe Ruth’s Moberly sister”.
Mamie Ruth, was born as Mary Margaret Ruth, but everyone knew her as “Mamie” — the name, she would say, her brother George (Babe Ruth) would use to annoy her. She married Wilbur Marion Moberly and lived for many years in Baltimore. Mamie Ruth Moberly — the little sister of baseball immortal Babe Ruth — died of cancer at the Colton Villa Nursing Center in Hagerstown. She was 91. True to her character of never saying anything negative about people, she would take exception to anyone’s calling her brother bad.

This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed, nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players. It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball), but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do…. bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
