I just think it was pretty cool that you could just walk up there and get an autograph..from such a big name player..compared to today.

Ha, that was my thought too. It's like "Hey, run down there and get Babe to sign something." No big whoop. So jealous!

I know... really...

Today there are a dozen flunkies with headsets positioned to stop anyone that doesn't have tickets for those seats from going down to the edge of the field.

the home movie doesnt show the signature on the ball, so nice as it is, its not proof it is the ball in the auction. it might be, but it might be that the signed ball was lost or signature faded to oblivion and this is another ball. there is no way to know. its a leap of faith.

After reading this thread, I dug around and re-located the thread on David A's 1927 forged Ruth ball. It took me all evening to read it (23 pages), but it was well worth it. The discussions on provenance were fantastic.

Also, belated congrats to David for his 'new' 1927 ball.

And if you somehow managed to get down to the field, the players would just ignore you, anyway.
Don't want to just give away "the product."
It's bad business.
