    Description

    Circa 1930 Babe Ruth Signed Index Card. "Babe Ruth" signs large and bold in the deepest and darkest steel-tip black fountain pen ink you can imagine. There is a very slight smudge on the first stroke of the "h" but this slight distraction is easily overlooked when you take into account the size, strength, and richness of this exemplar. The autograph appears on a 3x5" index card to which a 1.25x1" photo of The Bambino is neatly affixed at the lower right corner. The index card exhibits a rectangular patch of light toning, which is the result of the card having been in a mat at some point. But even that digression is muted by Ruth's superlative script. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
