    Circa 1934 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Babe Ruth possessed a rare eloquence with the bat when he dug in to the batter's box, wielding his lumber with the same demeanor that captivates the audience of a booming orator. His affinity for bombast both on and off the field, as well as the prowess he drew from to back it up, elevated the Great Bambino to the position of the world's most popular face during the height of his Major League run. Exceptionally detailed, this elegant portrait of the Babe brings the player back into the realm of humanity as we are afforded a look directly into the tired eyes of the Hall of Famer. Ruth has perfectly signed his name to the 8x10" print, making out a personalized inscription that reads, "To a real pal - Fridie Wright - From Babe Ruth" in 8/10 ink. Photo has been mounted on a thick stock backing. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - $6,000.
