    Description

    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. The Bambino poses with the tools of his trade in this classic image of baseball's greatest drawing card. A strong black fountain pen inscription, rating a solid 8/10 in quality, reads, "To my friend M.E. Malast, Sincerely Babe Ruth." The image measures approximately 8x10", and appears to be a magazine photo that was once folded and later flattened and glued to a cardboard backing. One vertical fold crosses the inscription area (though not the autograph), but the fold lines do not distract the eye significantly. Some wear appears at upper and lower borders as well, but when properly matted and framed the image will present magnificently. A striking piece, worthy of a home in the finest of collections. LOA from PSA/DNA.

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