    1936 Babe Ruth Signed "Babe Ruth's Baseball Advice" Publication. "Play Ball, Young Fellow!" suggests the beloved Bambino, whose legendary kindness to the boys that idolized him is well documented in baseball lore. This highly collectible publication in which Ruth passes on the breadth of his baseball knowledge to the next generation is made all the more desirable by a flawless blue ink inscription on the title page reading, "Best wishes From Babe Ruth, 1936." A light pencil notation in another hand on the opposing page explains that this book was given as a prize to a young New York City baseball player for his outstanding skills. The softcover publication shows expected wear at spine and edges, but binding is still tight, and interior pages present as NRMT. LOA from PSA/DNA.
