    Description

    1948 Babe Ruth Signed "The Babe Ruth Story" Book. Search the globe and you will not locate a more pristine Bambino autograph than that which resides on the title page of this hardcover autobiography released just weeks prior to Ruth's passing. Though the book closes with the Babe's pledge to regain his health and continue his work as an ambassador of the game he loved and dominated, it sadly was not to be, and as such very few signed examples of this collectible book are to be found. Short of a missing dustjacket, there is little room for criticism of the offered specimen, as spine and edge wear is minimal and the binding remains tight. All interior pages present as NRMT, keeping pace with the historic autograph that makes this piece a genuine heirloom of baseball's Golden Age. LOA from PSA/DNA.
