    Description

    1934 Babe Ruth Signed Tour of Japan Real Photo Postcard. A ballplayer gripping the horsehide at far right suggests the Baseball Tourists did a bit of practicing en route to Japan, when this image on the ship's deck was snapped. That's the mighty Babe at center, beneath a 9/10 example of the hobby's most collectible autograph. Fellow Hall of Famer Lefty Gomez stands and signs to Ruth's right, with trainer Doc Ebling balancing the display at Ruth's left shoulder. These signatures are likewise 9/10, and the 3x5" postcard presents as EX-MT. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
