    1932 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Alan Gould hit the jackpot on Christmas Day, 1932. It was on this day that New York Yankees great Babe Ruth signed and personalized this vintage photograph to Gould. Coming off a season in which he hit .341 with 41 home runs and 137 RBI, Ruth was still a couple years away from slowing down.

    Very light fading of the ink leads to an overall autograph grade of 7/10, given a slight bump due to the perfectly contrasting location of the signature. The top two corners are torn, but would be matted out easily during the framing process. A couple of wrinkles are also evident but do not touch the central image of Ruth's face. Dimensions 6x8". Overall, a stellar Ruth signed photo for the most finicky of collectors. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
