    Description

    1935 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. While it broke many hearts (including, to a degree, his own) to see the Babe suited up in anything other than a Yankee uniform, we nonetheless can't help but love this fantastic image of an aging Babe in his final days as a player. Less than three months after officially hanging up his spikes, Ruth signed this soulful photograph for a close family friend. His 10/10 black fountain pen inscription reads, "To Paul Martin, From Babe Ruth, Aug 24, 1935." The photograph itself also remains free of even the slightest defect. For the uncompromising "condition snob." Photo measures 6x9" and is matted beautifully to the final dimensions of 14x17". LOA from PSA/DNA.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
