    1933 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph Having just called his 1932 World Series shot four months earlier, the Babe was still enjoying his last World Championship at the time this photo was snapped and signed. A marvelous portrait of a nattily dressed Bambino is inscribed in the darkest possible ink to a fan. "To Matty Martin, From Babe Ruth, Feb 7th, 1933." The rare (for the time) 8" x 10" format of the photo makes it particularly desirable, and stamping on verso suggests that it was taken for a news service. The photograph remains as strong as the inscription it holds, at a solid NRMT. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
