    Description

    1946 Babe Ruth Signed Blank Business Card. Babe Ruth has long been revered for his ability to perform for an audience, on and off of the field. The proud recipient of this Ruth autograph recounts his story in the included letter of provenance. He was a fortunate recipient of a ticket to attend the Babe Ruth Radio Show in person in 1946. After the show, Babe handed out blank business cards with his autograph to all of the children who attended the show.

    The Bambino's blue ballpoint ink signature still stands strong at an 8/10. Fred Fitzsimmons signed (and traced) the reverse side. The card shows signs of wear on its edges and discoloring, but none that effect the Ruth autograph. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
