    Description

    1948 Babe Ruth Signed "The Babe Ruth Story" Book, PSA/DNA Mint 9. A splendid Bambino autograph resides on the title page of this hardcover autobiography, released just weeks prior to Ruth's passing. Though the text closes with the Babe's pledge to regain his health and continue his work as an ambassador of the game he loved and dominated, it sadly was not to be, and consequently very few signed examples of this collectible book are to be found. The book itself, like the autograph it contains, remains in fine shape, still tightly bound, with just minor edge and corner wear. Dust jacket is absent. The experts at PSA/DNA assign a "Mint 9" rating to the blue fountain pen autograph, one of the last ever signed by the game's greatest ambassador. All interior pages present as NRMT, keeping pace with the historic autograph that makes this piece a genuine heirloom of baseball's Golden Age. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
