    Description

    1926 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Early photo finds the boyish Babe posing with Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson and Montreal businessman Guy Toombs in the months just prior to the start of his record-breaking sixty home run season. The image is mounted on a cardboard backing and inscribed, "To Guy Toombs From 'Babe' Ruth," and "For H.L. Douglas with compliments of Vilhjalmur Stefansson, 10/15/26" in ink that rates a technical 9/10 but competes somewhat for contrast with the dark background. The image exhibits a small degree of wrinkling well clear of the signatures, an issue that is only distracting at certain angles to the light. Photo measures 8x10". Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
