    Description

    1940's Babe Ruth Signed Oversized Photograph, PSA Graded Mint 9. While this stirring photographic portrait of the Babe should be familiar to most collectors, the enormous size of this high-quality print is certainly no common sight. There was surely some reason for this expensive print to be made, and one can only assume that the original recipient was a VIP of some manner. We can thank that person for giving the piece the care it deserves, as the 11x14" photo provides not a single flaw of note, and the black fountain pen "Sincerely, Babe Ruth" blasts from the pale background at a strength of 9/10, a score assigned on the full PSA LOA. One of the most impressive autographed Ruth photos you'll encounter at auction in 2008. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
