    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph & Single Signed Baseball. Pair of autographed pieces from the game's greatest star were signed to Judge Richard Burke and consigned to Heritage by Burke's son, who had the ball and photo beautiful mounted in a shadow box for display. The photo measures 6.5x8" in size and captures the Bambino in the follow through of his home run swing. Blue fountain pen ink spells, "To My good friend Judge Burke, Sincerely Babe Ruth." The inscription and signature project at an impressive 8.5/10, and the photo shows no signs of damage or wear. The Official National League ball mounted just below, still in its original box, reads simply, "To Dick, from Babe Ruth" at a boldness of 5/10. We have not removed the ball from the display to examine it in its entirety, but the portion that is visible shows no staining or damage of any sort. Together the pieces form an impressive display, measuring 17x23" in its shadow box frame. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
