    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph, PSA/DNA EX 5. Terrific spring training photo capturing Ruth fouling one off seems a rather odd choice for signing, but that's one of the things we love about it. The other thing? The great inscription, which is sure to be a conversation starter: "To my boy friend Dan From Babe Ruth." Now, of course, we definitely aren't suggesting that the Sultan of Swat batted from both sides of the plate, but the evolution of the language does make the choice of words draw a chuckle today. Imperfect ink adhesion accounts for the EX 5 grade, but it still presents very well. The 8x10" photo is stamped by the official Yankees photographer "Thorne Photo" on verso, and the image exhibits no flaws worthy of note. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, EX 5 with Full Grading LOA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
