    1940's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph, PSA/DNA Mint 9. Here's proof that PSA/DNA does not render Gem Mint 10 grades willingly, as if there were ever a candidate for such an honor this is it. Ruth's blue fountain pen inscription, reading "To My good friend Lena, Sincerely Babe Ruth" is literally unimprovable, certainly the boldest we've ever encountered on a photo. The classic portrait shot of the game's greatest figure is an 8x10" sepia-toned beauty, with only minor edge wear and a few all but imperceptible spots of toning. For those collectors obsessed with condition, this is your lot. Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
