Description

Brexit. Terrorism. Protests. Espionage. Shifting global alliances. These are uncertain times to say the least, and global economic growth hangs in the political balance. No one knows where the Dow will be a week, a month, a year from now, let alone later today! Yet one investment sector is still firing on all cylinders and remains immune to the tumult of geopolitics. Yes, you guessed it: Babe Ruth signed baseballs. As Forbes Magazine put it in one of their titles a few years ago, "Who Needs a 401K If You Own a Baseball Signed by Babe Ruth?" We couldn't agree more.

 

If the Bambino ball that once sold for a record-breaking $388,000 is the hobby equivalent of Berkshire Hathaway stock, then consider the offering presented here before you as a hot commodity like Amazon or Alphabet/Google. Share prices are steadily rising...and the sky is the limit. Ruth's iconic signature is a beautiful, bold "8"-strength example on a red-and-blue-stitched, "Official League" sphere. The soiled, medium-toned surface has the distinct look of a 1920s barnstorming ball, perhaps even one that saw brief use on the field.

 

No matter what happens to the European Union, no matter which countries are manipulating currency, and no matter who tomorrow's Twitter Wars are about, you can rest assured that this bullish ball will beat the market over the long haul. Full LOA from JSA.

 

This item has a reserve (estimated value $10,000-$15,000).
