    Description

    1934 Babe Ruth Signed Government Postcard. The New York Yankees had just completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago White Sox in the Bronx when the Babe mailed this penny postcard to a young fan in Massachusetts. This scarce and enormously desirable GPC dating to the final season of Ruth's pinstriped service is not only inscribed "Sincerely, Babe Ruth," but fully addressed by him on the verso as well! All ink is an unimprovable 10/10. Some uneven toning is apparently the result of years filed away with other papers. No creasing or tearing. A rare opportunity to fill that gap in your government postcard collection. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
