Babe Ruth's signature is one of the most prized signatures in the hobby. A Babe Ruth single signed Baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.

Babe Ruth signed a lot of baseballs. Always making himself available to the public he signed as much or more than any one from his era to today but it would be impossible to put a number on this. Very candid you will also find many different photos of Babe Ruth.

What is the value of a Babe Ruth sighed bat?

It is very rare to come across an autographed Babe Ruth baseball bat. There are not enough signed Babe Ruth bats to give you an accurate value. It wasn't a common item to have signed in Ruth's day. Baseballs were readily available, and Ruth signed plenty. Fountain pens were used to sign most autographs, and it might have been a bad choice to sign a bat. I did find a bat that was painted silver before Babe Ruth personally inscribed and dated his Fountain pen signature on it. The bat sold for $12,969. I would think that a higher quality baseball bat would sell for $20,000. and up.You might have a Babe Ruth endorsed signature model baseball bat. This signature that appears on the bat is stamped on at the factory, and is placed on the barrel. Depending on the condition, size, make, and model it could be worth between $300. -$500. Bats with decals, and pro model bat would be worth more.

Babe Ruth baseball autographed in 1948?

One of the most prized signatures in the hobby a Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. The type of baseball will also effect the price with an Official American league baseball from Ruth's playing days being of the most value.A baseball in poor condition with a weak signature could sell in the $4,000. price range or less, and a minty baseball with a strong signature could sell in the $15,000 price range or more. But with all said the strength of the authenticity that accompanies the signature will hold the bulk of the value. If the signature is not properly authenticated the baseball could sell at half the market value or less.If the baseball is inscribed, and dated "1948" by Babe Ruth the baseball will have extra value. The Babe was dying of throat cancer, and past away that year. Being very ill, he most likely did not sign many baseballs. On July 26, 1948, Babe Ruth attended the premier of the film about his life, The Babe Ruth Story, which starred William Bendix. Ruth however was feeling very ill, and left well before the film was finished. Three weeks later, on Aug.16 1948 Babe Ruth Passed away.

Did Babe Ruth ever sign little league baseball?

Babe Ruth signed a lot of baseballs, and most items signed were items that were readily available. I'm sure he has signed more than one Little League baseball, as coming across a group of kids signing the baseball they had in hand. As far as value a Major League baseball used during Ruth's day would be most desired for the signature and would sell at a higher value than a signed Little League baseball in the same condition. The bottom line: Regardless of the type of baseball signed, the condition, and the display of the signature will hold the bulk of the value, along with the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature.


What is the value of a ball signed by both Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron?

A Babe Ruth signature is one of the most prized signatures in the hobby. A Babe Ruth single signed baseball in general is worth about $6,000.-$10,000. Value may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. If the signature is not properly authenticated it could sell at half the market value or less. The signature should be bold, strong, and stand out in contrast to the photo. A weak, and faded signature will sell for less. Most autographs in Ruth's day was signed with a fountain pen. A signature with the quotation marks around "Babe" typifies his pre-1928 autograph and will sell at a higher value. A Hank Aaron single signed baseball is valued at about $250. Adding Hank Aaron's signature could devalue the ball and sell for less. Multi signed baseballs often do. If it sells for more it would be because it was bought by a collector that desires the two signatures, but won't sell for much higher than the value of a Babe Ruth signed baseball. Ex-New York Yankee David Wells had Barry Bonds sign a Babe Ruth single signed baseball. This sent chills up the spines of hard core collectors noting that the ball will be devalued.

Which is better to have a Babe Ruth signed baseball or Babe Ruth signed baseball card?

i'd have to say the baseball would be better Signed baseballs are worth more than signed photos, and cards. Baseballs are the most common, and preferred by collectors because of it's connection to the game, low cost, availability and it displays the signature well. The display of the signature is the key to value. For example: Find a magazine photo about the size of a baseball card (2 1/2' x 3 /1/2') that would represent a baseball card or photograph, and a white sheet of paper, that will represent a baseball. Most autographs were signed with a fountain pen back in Ruth's day so now take a pen, and sign your name on the magazine photo. Now sign your name on the white piece of paper. As you will see, that the white paper (baseball) displays your signature much better. The signature on the magazine photo (baseball card) doesn't stand out as well in contrast to the background. Which would you pay more for? The baseball is also more desired for the signature because of it's connection to the game. A photo can sell as high as a baseball (in some cases) if the signature stand out well in contrast to the photo, and make for a great display.

In 1905 Honus Wagner, a star for the Pittsburgh Pirates, signed a contract with Hillerich & Bradsby co. and became the first player ever to endorse a bat. His autograph was also the first to be used on a bat and the first known professional athlete endorsement of a retail product. Ty Cobb signed with the company in 1908.

What is the value of a signed Babe Ruth bat never used that is on a eight-tenths scale for clarity?

Bats featuring the genuine autograph of Babe Ruth are highly sought by collectors and potentially very valuable. Unfortunately, they are also very often forged. Presuming authenticity, values can range dramatically. Key factors are: the placement and clarity of Ruth's signature (the bigger and bolder, the better), the type and size of bat (is it an "Babe Ruth" model bat?), and the all-important overall condition of the bat and signature. The provenance; the who, what, when and where of a signed ball's history, may also add value if it's been documented. If genuine, your bat would be worth $2500 to as much as $7500, depending on all the aforementioned factors. With autographs, a picture is truly worth the proverbial thousand words, and can save alotta time in the authentication, appraisal, and selling process.The person whoi previously answered your question did a good job in pointing out what to look for. However, assuming the autograph is real, I feel that the approximate value is more than $10,000.Babe Ruth Signed baseball batIt is very rare to come across an autographed Babe Ruth baseball bat.

What all time person has the most expensive autograph?

The most expensive autographed baseball in history was sold at an auction held on May 6, 2006 when a Joe DiMaggio Marilyn Monroe dual signed baseball sold for $191,200. Breaking the record of a Babe Ruth signed baseball in 2005. A Babe Ruthsingle signed baseball, the finest known Ruth-signed ball, graded 9.5 out of 10 by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) sold for $150,000 in 2005. Babe Ruth single signed baseballs in general sell for about $4,000.-$10,000. so this price is well above the market value. A "Shoeless" Joe Jackson Single signed baseball has a "book Value" of about $25,000.-$40,000. BUT A Joe Jackson signature is perhaps the scarcest in all of sports. Part of the legend of Joe Jackson is that he was illiterate, and could not even sign his name. The fact was Jackson could sign his name, but was very reluctant to do so, and rarely signed except when absolutely necessary, usually on legal documents. It Has been years since a Joe Jackson signed baseball has come up for auction. If one was to be auctioned off today it could break a record for most expensive autographed.


Who discovered Babe Ruth?

Patrick J. Donovan, also known as Patsy Donovan, a standout baseball player manager and scout, is generally credited with discovering Babe Ruth in Baltimore. Donovan who was a native of Ireland, was known as a very keen judge of baseball talent. So impressed with young Ruth's pitching and hitting abilities, he immediately urged the Red Sox hierarchy to allow him to sign Ruth on the spot. The rest is history. PS: Patsy Donovan himself made many more interesting contributions to Major League Baseball in a career that spanned more then 50 years. In spite of a lifetime batting average of 313, and a total number of some 520 stolen bases, this humble and widely respected baseball star, has never been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.


Why did Babe Ruth hug Lou Gehrig?

That was the famous bear hug because Gehrig had Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which made him "unfit" to play baseball. He and Ruth had a falling out for the previous seven year because of an unintentional insult from Gehrig's mother. Gehrig was dying and the hug was a public sign of the end of the feud before Lou Gehrig passed away as not to end on bad terms.
