    Circa 1920 "Babe" Ruth Signed Blank Business Card. When an "ordinary" Ruth signature isn't good enough, the advanced collector seeks out examples like this one. Note the quotation marks and the small differences in the lettering formation? That's pure early Ruth, dating from his first seasons in pinstripes (and possibly even before!). The black fountain pen ink rates a marvelous 9+/10, and the 2x4" card that holds it is lightly and attractively toned to add that tasty vintage touch. You may want to find a photo of the Babe when he was skinny to pair with this one. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
