    1931 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph by Burke. Soulful portrait of the game's greatest star is instantly identifiable as the work of George Burke, whose creations reign as the most celebrated and feverishly collected photography of Depression-era baseball. Just a year before he would club his famous "Called Shot" wearing a uniform identical in style to this one, Ruth carefully inscribed the impressive 8x10" shot, "To My Pal Charles B. Dillingham From Babe Ruth, Sept 1st 1931." The Yanks would take both halves of a doubleheader against the Babe's old Red Sox club this date at the Stadium. Ruth's ink is 8/10 in strength, occasionally competing slightly for contrast. The photo was mounted onto a cardboard backing ages ago and bears only a couple all but imperceptible surface flaws and stains, otherwise appearing NRMT. A spectacular representation of the all-important Ruth signed photo. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
