Now that PSA has expanded into the domain of qualifying autographed baseballs, one such as this is an obvious candidate for a very exclusive evaluation. We understand that PSA’s standards account for the strength of a particular signature as well as the merit of its medium. And so, we introduce this masterpiece to report that the medium is an OAL (Harridge) baseball. Though unused and unblemished, the ball’s stampings are a bit faded, thereby reducing the aggregate grade. We then announce that PSA has declared the quality of the ball/autograph to be NM-MT+ 8.5. And that determination then expresses how strong this Ruth autograph really is. As is evident in our photograph, Babe signed this one on a side panel and personalized it “To Loraine.” As it turns out, ‘Loraine’ is one Loraine Benzinger, our consignor for this piece. As she approached her 16th birthday in 1948, her father procured this autograph from the Babe. Her father worked in one of New York’s popular restaurants where Ruth frequently dined and, despite his failing health, he readily accommodated the autograph request – and an ideal signing it is!
