    Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph with Vintage Joe DiMaggio Autograph on Verso. An intriguing rare pairing of two baseball icons from a point in time where one had settled into retirement while the other was writing his own legend. Sepia portrait image (7.75x9.5") of the Babe in a pensive profile is inscribed and signed "To My Pal Wilfred Miller From Babe Ruth" in black fountain pen. The inscription is 9/10, while the autograph grades 8/10. Verso is inscribed and signed in pencil by a young Joltin' Joe: "To My Pal Wilfred Miller, Joseph DiMaggio." The photo has many creases and some cracking but is fully intact and still very presentable. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
