    Description

    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. The great Bambino presides over the festivities at what appears to be a birthday celebration, most likely at Spring Training in St. Petersburg, Florida due to the palm trees visible in the background. Contrasting perfectly against the white tablecloth in the foreground is an absolutely unimprovable 10/10 blue ink signature from the Yankees legend, certainly the finest one could possibly find on a photograph. The 8x10" photo itself is in likewise magnificent condition, without a single noteworthy defect. We have identified the gentleman sitting at far left as Ruth's teammate Lyn Lary, who helps date the piece to the 1929-34 era. Also included in the lot is another 8x10" photo snapped at this event, a wider shot picturing the guests being entertained by the charismatic superstar. LOA from PSA/DNA.
