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.

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.

On July 26, 1948, Babe Ruth attended the premier of the film about his life, The Babe Ruth Story, which starred William Bendix (ironically Bendix had been a Yankee bat boy in the 1920's.) 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.

A Baseball signed by Babe Ruth in 1948 would be rare considering he was ill. If Babe Ruth himself inscribed the baseball 1948 it will have a higher value.

If the signature is not properly authenticated the baseball could sell at half the market value or less. For more information and a sample of a Babe Ruth signature visit the link I left below.
