Description



A bumbler on the base paths and shoddy in the outfield, Babe Herman (d.1987) nevertheless endeared himself to fans, teammates and yes even managers, with his great offensive output. One of the top sluggers of the 1920s-1930s, Herman posted some lofty batting averages, reaching his highwater mark of .393 in 1930, while with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Had he been able to extend his 13-year career for a few more productive seasons, not even his on field ineptitude would have kept him and his .324 lifetime batting average out of the Hall of Fame. Make this fantastic hitter yours, with this single-signed baseball. Herman's penmanship is also a big hit, as this pleasing autograph testifies. Placed neatly and stylishly on the sweet spot of a vintage OAL/Cronin ball, Herman's signature rates as a ("7") strength example and the ball retains a pleasing appearance, though the factory labeling stamps are significantly faded. PSA/DNA basic cert/sticker.
