    Description

    1928 Babe Ruth's Own Book of Baseball, Signed by Ruth. Highly collectible in its own right, particularly with its rare dust jacket, the presented volume hit bookstore shelves at the absolute height of the Babe's talents and fame, just months after he stunned the sporting world with his record sixty home run season. His inscription to a fan appears on the opening blank page, "To Irving O. Thomas From 'Babe' Ruth," the quotation-marked signature style adding extra collecting appeal. The writing survives with splendid 9+/10 boldness. Dust jacket exhibits expected wear, but otherwise there are no condition flaws worthy of mention. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
