Outstanding high-grade Babe Ruth Home Run Special baseball together with its original box. This was the ball of choice for any red-blooded American boy during the early 1930s. Manufactured by Reach, the red-and-blue stitched ball features Ruth's facsimile signature stamped on the sweet spot, below which is printed "Home Run Special." The ball remains in Excellent to Mint condition and remains housed in its rare original box. The red-and-yellow box features Ruth's portrait image on a side panel and also includes the seldom seen original paper band. The lid of the box is detached, but present, otherwise it presents much as it did when sitting on a store shelf some ninety years ago. An exceptional example of this highly collectible baseball and one that would be a welcome addition to any vintage baseball or Babe Ruth collection.
