Even if you have a professional model Babe Ruth Bat, same size, and model, you would need a letter of provenance from a team official or player to accompany the bat. Provenance is the history of ownership of a particular item. It allows the buyer to secure additional insight as to the origin or chain of custody of the item. A letter of provenance from a fan or stating it is from a collection is not sufficient.

Whats your 1905 baseball bat signed and used by Babe Ruth worth?

1905 George Herman Ruth was 10 years oldBabe Ruth made his Major League debut on July 11, 1914. In 1905 Babe Ruth was 10 years old. in 1905 Honus Wagner, a star for the Pittsburgh Pirates, signed a contract with Hillerich & Bradsby co. and became the first player ever to endorse a bat. His autograph was also the first to be used on a bat and the first known professional athlete endorsement of a retail product. The bat you have could not possibly be a Babe Ruth game used baseball bat from 1905. If the bat was made in 1905, and used by Babe Ruth at a later date you would need very strong provenance showing that the bat was used by Babe Ruth.

What is the value of a 1930 Cleveland Indians program with Babe Ruth autograph?

Babe Ruth Signed Cleveland Indians programThe value of the 1930 Cleveland Indians program is meaningless with the exception that it is a poor item for the Babe Ruth signature, that will hold the bulk of the value but, it is a Babe Ruth Signature.A Babe Ruth Signed Program in general is worth about about $2,500.-$3,000. Price will vary based on condition of both the signature, the program, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. The paper of the program could tend to deteriorateover time, and collectors will not pay top dollar. Part of the value will be determined by how well the program displays the signature. The type of ink used, and how it stands out in contrast to the prgram.

What is value of a baseball found at a storage auction supposedly used and signed by Babe Ruth?

The value of "Supposedly" used and signed by Babe Ruth is low if not worthless. The baseball will only have value if "it is" used and signed by Babe Ruth. The only way to remove the "Supposedly" is by having the signature properly authenticated. As far as being "used" only a high level letter of provenance tracing the ball back to the baseball actually being used by the Babe will confirm this. Without strong provenance the ball will always be "Supposedly used" and will have no value as such. There will be no way of proving that the baseball is "game used" or "used by Babe Ruth" so what you have is a Babe Ruth single signed baseball which does have high value. However if the baseball is not properly authenticated you could land up with half the market value or less. The value of a Babe Ruth single signed baseball could be worth anywhere from $4,000. -$10,000. and up Value will vary baseball on the condition of both the baseball and signature, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. The signature should be strong, and bold, as opposed to faded and hard to see. If the baseball is "Supposedly" game used then the baseball should be an Official Major League baseball, and this will add some value as well, as opposed to a common store bought baseball.

What is the value of a pre-1940s Babe Ruth card that is nine inches high and designed to sit on a counter?

I believe the card you are describing is a 1934 Goudey R309-1 Babe Ruth premium card. Babe Rurh was not included in the regular set in 1934 as Lou Gehrig was the spokesman for the Goudey set that year. Because of their strained relationship it would have been an insult to Lou Gehrig to include Babe Ruth in the set. A 1934 Goudey R309-1 Babe Ruth premium card that has an easel type stand up back most likely used as a counter top advertising display sold for $500 in a Hunt Auction. I have seen another being sold for $1,000.

What is a the value of a 1926 game 4 Babe Ruth home run baseball?

1926 Babe Ruth Home Run BaseballA baseball hit for a home run by Babe Ruth in 1926 would have a significant value. The problem is proving it. A Babe Ruth 1933 All Star Game home run baseball sold at auction in 2006 for $805,000. However, No collector will pay a large amount of money for a baseball that has been handed down with a story.The value of a "game used" Babe Ruth home run baseball will rely on your ability to prove so. Otherwise it will be valued as a used Major League baseball from 1926, with a story. A "Game used" home run baseball would have to be accompanied with provenance, and the quality of the provenance will dictate the value. A letter from a player, team, or League official would be acceptable. A letter from a fan at the game would not hold much weight if any. Without provenance the value will rely on the buyers belief in your story.Babe Ruth hit 3 home runs in game 4 of the 1926 World Series. Any one of these baseballs would have a very high value but only if documented properly.

What is the value of a Babe Ruth sighed bat?

It is very rare to come across an autographed Babe Ruth baseball bat. There are not enough signed Babe Ruth bats to give you an accurate value. It wasn't a common item to have signed in Ruth's day. Baseballs were readily available, and Ruth signed plenty. Fountain pens were used to sign most autographs, and it might have been a bad choice to sign a bat. I did find a bat that was painted silver before Babe Ruth personally inscribed and dated his Fountain pen signature on it. The bat sold for $12,969. I would think that a higher quality baseball bat would sell for $20,000. and up.You might have a Babe Ruth endorsed signature model baseball bat. This signature that appears on the bat is stamped on at the factory, and is placed on the barrel. Depending on the condition, size, make, and model it could be worth between $300. -$500. Bats with decals, and pro model bat would be worth more.

1937 Babe Ruth newspaper articleIn general a 1937 Babe Ruth newspaper article could be worth about $15.- $25. A full paper would be of the higher value.

The historic significance of the newspaper article and the condition of the paper is important. Because of the low quality paper used newspapers do not sell at high price. Browning, rips, and creases will lower the price significantly
