    Description

    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Oversized Bowling Scorecard. Proving that there was no sport he couldn't master, the Bambino rolled a 196 and a 191 in two games at a New Jersey alley in a friendly game with Big League buddy Jack Salveson. While it's the Babe's enormous (five inches long!) red crayon signature at lower right that will catch most collectors' eyes, it must be noted that all scoring is done in the Yankee legend's hand as well, including the two rows of his own personal scoring which begins with his unmistakable "Babe" autograph. That's three Ruth autographs for the price of one! The oversized scorecard (17x20") shows paper loss along upper edge, but nothing that even approaches the bowling scores, much less the autographs themselves. Certainly the largest Ruth autographs in this auction, and among the largest on earth! Buddies Salveson and Russ Millett have signed at lower right as well. Matted and framed to 21x25". LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
