    Description

    1940's Babe Ruth Signed Promotional Photograph. Glossy photo (5x6.5") was issued as a promotion by the "Ford Motor Company" in support of "American Legion Junior Baseball," trading on the unmatched celebrity appeal of the game's greatest star. Ruth autographs the classic image at lower left in marvelously bold (9+/10) black fountain pen ink, one of the strongest Ruth signatures we've ever encountered on a photo. A vertical crease runs the center of the image, remaining clear of the all-important autograph, and minor edge creasing likewise fails to intersect with the signature. Photo is professionally matted and framed to final dimensions of 15x17". Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
