    Description

    1933 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Advanced Ruth collectors will surely take great interest in this particular specimen, which has two very compelling issues working in its favor. First, the 3.5x5.5" image is an original one-of-a-kind snapshot, likely snapped by a fan over the Sportsman's Park outfield wall. The Babe graciously poses in his road greys, hands on hips. The fan has noted on the cardboard backing plate that the photo was "Taken at St. Louis, June 24, 1933," a game that the Yanks took by a tally of eight to four. But even more appealing than the never before seen portrait is the quality of the inscription, which rates a bona fide 10/10 on even the stingiest grading scale. Flawlessly bold blue fountain pen ink reads, "To Harold Myers, Sincerely Babe Ruth." Light wear at the edges is mentioned only for the sake of accuracy, as it does nothing to diminish the photo's tremendous charm. Definitely a top quality Ruth piece in every regard. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
