Spectacular trio on this signed ball which includes President Warren Harding, Babe Ruth, and Ty Cobb. Official American League (Johnson) baseball is in Very Good condition and stands as the only ball signed by Harding that we have ever handled; we are putting it at circa 1920 as it may have been signed before he was elected as President. Harding's black signature on a side panel can display as a single and is around 6/10 - there appears have been another signature below his but if so it has faded so badly as to not be apparent to the naked eye. Babe Ruth on the sweet spot is around 3.5/10, and Ty Cobb on a side panel is around 5.5/10. PSA has stated that there are two unidentified signatures on the ball. As the 29th President of the United States, Harding presided over a difficult post-World War I era. Having been elected in 1921, his brief tenure was marked with scandal before his sudden passing from a heart attack in 1923. Incredible signed baseball, perhaps the only instance in history where Ruth and Cobb's signature on a ball is NOT the center of attention.  Comes with PSA LOA.
