    Description

    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Classic image of the left-handed swing that launched 714 long balls is printed to dimensions of 8x10" and subsequently blessed by a brief inscription and signature from the subject. Ruth's black fountain pen ink reads, "To Jackie, From Babe Ruth," supplied at a strength of a conservative 8/10. The wide border at the lower left hand corner is chipped, but a simple matting job will hide that flaw entirely. The wonderful silver gelatin print is otherwise quite clean, with no creasing and only a slight instance of a surface abrasion which is effectively camouflaged by the white-shirted crowd in the background. Go ahead and tell your buddies that this photo came out of the Robinson estate. It's not the truth, but what's a harmless little fib between friends? LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
