    Description

    1947 Babe Ruth & Burris Jenkins Signed Cartoon. Stirring image of the great Bambino as he was honored at the April 26, 1947 "Babe Ruth Day" at Yankee Stadium is the unmistakable work of celebrated New York Journal cartoonist Jenkins, who dedicates this print to sports agent Christy Walsh's son at lower right. Just below Jenkins' autographed inscription is the signature of Ruth himself, just a point lighter than the cartoonist's 8/10 ink. The Babe's autograph upon a portrait of himself bidding farewell to the ballpark he claimed as his own makes for a truly heartwrenching piece, and the provenance from the Walsh family couldn't be more desirable. Image area measures 9x11", with a simple matting job extending the final dimensions to 13x15". LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $5,000 - $8,000.
