    Description

    1934 Babe Ruth Signed Tour of Japan Snapshot Photograph. Magnificent photographic portrait of the game's greatest figure may be small in stature (2.25x3.25"), but it's massive in collecting appeal. One of two Babe Ruth signed Tour of Japan snapshots presented within this auction, this one captures the Babe's distinctive round face wonderfully, his eyes shaded by his visor as he gazes into the distance. The bold black fountain pen signature at bottom was gently brushed by Ruth's hand upon signing, but to little detriment. Signed photos from this most important of foreign baseball tours are exceedingly scarce, so this singularly unique photo should be on every serious collector's radar. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication with item pictured. JSA Auction LOA.
