    Stunning Baseball Kept In LA Garage Signed By Babe Ruth In 1927: $30K

    In 1927, Fern Ambrose Yarbrough and his son got to meet Babe Ruth in Los Angeles. The Bambino was in town at the peak of his career to shoot a silent motion picture, “Babe Ruth Comes Home.” The film location that day was Wrigley Field, the local professional ballpark.

    I collect Nolan Ryan cards I do not have. I might trade for Ted Williams or Johnny Bench. Advise me if you are out of country before making a trade.

    Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it's a cherished family heirloom with a remarkable family backstory and history (not to mention a pristine specimen). On the other hand, it could bring $30k, not exactly chump change. I would probably hang onto it, assuming I wasn't in financial trouble.
    What would you guys do?

    I'd probably question it being a cherished family heirloom if they had it kept in a garage. If I had any heirlooms I know I wouldn't keep them in my garage.

    Sounds like something he just had stuck in a box per the article. He was actually a firearms collector and the ball was brought back out of the basement after he passed.

    To me, and it touched on this in the article, the reason this ball will pull top dollar is because it wasn't "preserved" with shellac. I've seen some good looking Ruth balls with light shellac, but they don't compare to the way this one pops!

    It really does have a serious visual appeal. It's one of the better looking Ruth signed balls I've seen.
