    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth Limited Edition Signed Book. The Bambino's fame was never greater than at the time this autobiography was released to the literate masses. His sixty home run World Championship 1927 still fresh in everyone's minds, Ruth quickly added "best-selling author" to his long list of accomplishments. But while "Babe Ruth's Own Book of Baseball" sold like the proverbial hotcake, only one thousand copies of this special autographed version were ever made available to the public. Here we find number 356 of that supply, bearing a 10/10 fountain pen signature from the author. The preceding blank page has come loose from the binding, but all others remain firmly in place and even the original dust jacket, though very worn, is present. A special piece that brings its owner to the very heart of the Ruth legend. LOA from PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
