    1939 Babe Ruth Signed Baseball Centennial First Day Cover, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. One of the inaugural inductees to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936, Ruth was present and accounted for in Cooperstown (on the same date as the postmark featured here) for the grand opening of the Hall, its first induction ceremony, and baseball's centennial celebration. The Sultan boldly signs the top left corner of this historic first day cover in 9/10 black steel-tip fountain pen. One of the finest Ruth exemplars in this format. COA from SGC. Full LOA from PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
