    Description

    1942 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph from The Pride of the Yankees Filming. The original recipient of this great signed photo stands flanked by a trio of Yankees Hall of Famers in this shot snapped during filming of the critically acclaimed silver screen celebration of the life of Lou Gehrig, "The Pride of the Yankees." Vernon Rickard played catcher during game action in the film, and surely got a few pointers from Bill Dickey, who stands beside him. The Babe has inscribed his image in 8/10 black fountain pen ink, a simple, "To My Pal Vernon From Babe Ruth." The 8x10" photo exhibits minimal wear at the thin white border area, leaving the image itself free of distractions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
