    1948 Babe Ruth Signed Book. Bob Considine's famous biography, "The Babe Ruth Story," debuted just weeks before the Bambino succumbed to throat cancer, making signed copies particularly poignant and desirable collectibles. This soft cover version was inscribed to a young fan by the book's subject, with the opening page reading "To Bobby, From Babe Ruth" in flawless 10/10 blue fountain pen ink. The book itself shows appropriate wear for its advanced age but remains solid and complete, with none of the wear affecting the autograph in the slightest. A touching piece from a dying legend. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
