is a Lou Gehrig Babe Ruth Dual signed baseball with
the inscription: "To my friend Kay from H.L. Gehrig The kid known as Lou"
As you can see, this is a National league, western league ball from when Dale D. Gear was the president. His tenure was from 1926 through 1935 which does not really help to date this ball. I have
been told by one of the leading
auctioneers in the sports memorabilia industry that this ball was most likely signed in 1927 while on a barnstorming tour because it is a western league ball. Also, by the way
Gehrig signed it, you would have to guess it was early in his career. Click

Baseball also with an inscription written by the Babe. -
