    Circa 1932 Babe Ruth Signed Original Snapshot Photograph. Based on the photographs that originally accompanied this image, this is likely a 1932 spring training picture taken in St. Petersburg, Florida. Although several images of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and others were included, this is the only signed Ruth photo to come from the lot, and what a beauty it is! The approximately 3.25x5" deckle edge photograph shows Ruth throwing a ball during practice.

    Minor wear and cracking are evident on the edges of the picture, but the central image is undisturbed and free of creases. The signature itself is a stunning 9/10 or better in black steel tip fountain pen. For those looking for a vintage Ruth signed photograph, this is an opportunity not to be passed up. Encapsulated "Authentic" by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
