Ruth Home Run Ball Returns To Auction

A ball traced to Babe Ruth’s record-breaking home run campaign of 1927 is set to be offered in an upcoming auction.  Ruth would swat 60 home runs in 1927, breaking his own record and establishing a mark that would stand until Roger Maris broke it in the same ballpark during a 162-game 1961 season. The ball stayed in the original owner’s family, until it was sold in a Mastro Auctions sale in 2005. After enjoying it for awhile, the buyer has now consigned the ball to Memory Lane Incorporated which will offer it in its upcoming spring auction.
