Ruth Memorabilia Sets Pace in $8.37 Million REA Sale

There were thousands of items up for auction, but when the dust settled early Monday morning, Babe Ruth memorabilia once again rose to the top as Robert Edward Auctions closed out its fall catalog event.   Six items sold for over $100,000 and four were Ruth-related, led by a high-grade early 1920s single-signed baseball which garnered $144,000.  A circa-1927 ball signed by Ruth and Lou Gehrig went for $78,000.   In all, over 40,000 bids were placed in the auction, which generated $8.37 million and drew a record number of bidders.
