That must look really nice together.
You should frame them with an apple and betting ticket.

Maybe just coincidental, but Gehrig's version of "Babe" looks pretty simliar to Babe's actual signature.

Is it possible Gehrig was a 'secretarial' signer of Ruth's signature at times??

Anyone know why on the Babe Ruth 60th Home Run Autographed display piece, it seems whoever it was signed to has been erased/covered over.

"Better auction software?" "A web page you can actually navigate?"

I bought something from a Hunt's Auction for the first time earlier this year, and I spent months waiting for it, and then returning it. I felt like I had stepped back in time, and not in a good way.

They have made vast improvements. Also, I've been very impressed with their customer service. My only concern has been packing.
