    1939 Babe Ruth Signed Opening of Hall of Fame Ticket Stub. Highly collectible even in unsigned format, this impressive ticket stub providing entry for one lucky fan to Doubleday Field, not far from the grounds of Cooperstown, New York's brand new Baseball Hall of Fame, is autographed by one of the legends to gain induction on June 12, 1939. The Babe's pencil signature on verso is a bold 9/10, sandwiched between a 10/10 black ink offering from Postmaster General James Farley and a 9/10 pencil signature from Chicago Cubs third baseman Stan Hack. The ticket exhibits a moderate degree of handling wear and some tape staining at the left edge, likely from time in the original owner's scrapbook, but still presents wonderfully. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
