    Description

    1948 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. The sad last months of the great Bambino were fading away as the Yankees legend made his final trip to his beloved second home of Florida. From there, Ruth mailed this autographed 3.5x6" photo to a young admirer in Chicago. The image is unpersonalized, autographed in 8.5/10 blue fountain pen ink. The postcard-sized image is encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity. Also here is the original mailing envelope, apparently handwritten by Ruth's wife Claire and postmarked February 26, 1948 from North Miami Beach. Encapsulated "Authentic" by PSA/DNA.
