    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 consequently very few signed examples of this collectible book are to be found. The book itself, like the autograph it contains, remains in splendid shape, still tightly bound, and even the original dust jacket is here, in remarkably fine condition. All interior pages present as NRMT, keeping pace with the historic autograph that makes this piece a genuine heirloom of baseball's Golden Age. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

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