    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth's Own Book of Baseball, Signed. Marvelous shadow box display provides the viewer with an unimprovable example of the Babe's early signature, complete with the quotation marks that collectors love. It is applied to the opening page of Ruth's first major publication, listed as number 116 of a limited edition of 1,000 copies. It must be noted that the cover of the book has been torn loose, but this has allowed it to be nicely matted and framed to the left of the signed volume, while PSA/DNA's full letter of authenticity balances the display at right. Full dimensions are 15x25". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Third party shipping is required.
