    Description

    Early 1940's Autograph Album Signed by Babe Ruth, Frank Sinatra. A Young collectors childhood hobby is presented here, his little leatherbound volume entitled on the first page "Autographs of Famous People, Star and Friends," though the "Friends" idea was scrapped and the word crossed out. Most of the dozen or so signatures inside are clipped from other documents and glued in, with the most notable entries a bold fountain pen Babe Ruth signature on a soiled blank business card, and a strong Frank Sinatra clipping from some sort of music program. Also here are Bob Ripley (of "Ripley's Believe It Or Not"), bandleader Glenn Miller, and traced-over signatures from Phil Rizzuto, Tommy Henrich, Mitchell, Herrera, Rice, Russe and Bonhan. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
