    Description

    1926 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Early photo finds the boyish Babe posing with Arctic explorer Vilhjalmur Stefansson and Montreal businessman Guy Toombs in the months just preceding his record-breaking sixty home run season. Each well-dressed gentleman signs in black fountain pen ink that remains wonderfully bold but competes somewhat for contrast with the dark background. Each personalizes his inscription to "H.L. Douglas," though Stefansson does so with a simple "and from" above his "Nov. 16, 1926" dated autograph. Ruth and Stefansson rate 9/10, and Toombs 8/10. The image exhibits a small degree of wrinkling well clear of the signatures, an issue that is only distracting at certain angles to the light. Photo measures 8x10". Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
