    Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Signed Index Card. Prized by the purists of the baseball autograph collecting world, the humble 3x5" index card only really started to gain in popularity in the 1950's, after the great Bambino had already retired to that big batter's box in the sky. Can you recall the last time you found Ruth on an index card? Neither can we! And the condition is simply unimprovable, from the black fountain pen ink to the card itself. It's a piece just begging to be paired with your favorite image of the greatest Yankee of them all for a display that will impress even the most casual of baseball fans. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
