A rarity in the category of Ruth single signed baseballs, this example features the Babe's signature alone on the sweet spot of a Mizuno Official University League baseball. In addition to its extraordinary condition, the medium itself makes this an ideal representation from the historic 1934 US Tour of Japan considering that this is the type of ball used in competition on the tour and is of the highest quality baseball produced in Japan at the time. Ruth's dark black ink signature rates 8/10, while the near-white ball itself is no less than near mint with bold manufacturer's stampings. Accompanying the ball is its original Mizuno box, which has helped preserve it for over half a century. PSA/DNA has assigned an overall grade of NM-MT 8. LOAs from PSA/DNA (graded 8) and JSA.
