    Description

    1943 Babe Ruth Signed Letter with Rare Autograph Variation, PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10. The perfect storm of superior condition and rarity makes this two-page typed letter a true collecting treasure for the advanced Ruth hobbyist. On Ruth's personal letterhead, dated December 11th 1943, the letter is directed to an official with the "7th Michigan Sportmen's (sic) Boat Show." Ruth writes, in part:

    After reading over your proposal I gleaned from it that I would be called upon to bat out a half dozen fungoes (soft balls) into the crowd, at thirteen performances.

    The second page closes with one of the finest Ruth autographs in the hobby, in the rare "Geo H Babe Ruth" format. The autograph rates a perfect 10/10 from the unforgiving graders at PSA/DNA, and the pages themselves exhibit light original mailing folds but no other issues of note. Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Gem Mint 10. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
