    Description

    1946 Babe Ruth Signed Boxing Ticket, Beckett Authentic. Wherever Babe Ruth went, inevitably, a crowd followed. He almost always obliged to the avalanche of autograph requests. While attending the 13th Annual Diamond Gloves Amateur Tourney in 1946, Ruth signed this employee ticket, large and bold, in near perfect blue fountain pen. Ruth had an affinity for boxing as he used the sport as a training measure when he had to drop a few pounds. The ticket measures 8" and The Bambino signed against the blank portion of the background. Encapsulated by Beckett, Authentic.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.
