    1948 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Signed just three months before his passing, this classic 8x10" image pictures the Babe during happier and healthier times, training with the Yanks at their St. Petersburg, Florida spring training home. The black fountain pen inscription, reading "To My Pal Danny, From Babe Ruth, 5-5-48" rates an impressive 8.5/10, and contrasts wonderfully against the pale background of sky. The photo itself is free of any noteworthy condition issues. The "Danny" in question is Danny Goodman, a prominent and long-serving front office figure in the Dodgers organization. Consigned by a member of Goodman's family along with the Honus Wagner signed photograph also found within this auction. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
