    1927 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. The great Bambino was just two and a half months from the start of the most historic season of his career when he autographed this "beefcake" photo for a female admirer. While any signed image of the greatest Yankee of them all is tremendously desirable, a premium is properly placed on those of 1927 vintage, and this one is particularly fine, with 8/10 black fountain pen ink reading, "To Lucille From 'Babe' Ruth, Jan 23, 1927." The sepia-toned 8x10" shot exhibits minor handling wear that causes little distraction, none of which intrudes upon Ruth's inscription. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
