    Circa 1930 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph, PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10. Any Babe Ruth signed photograph is worthy of collecting lust, but we'd all have to admit that we get a bit tired of the same three or four images over and over again. Here's one we've never seen before, and one we don't expect to see again, as it is actually a news photo as the "Pacific & Atlantic Photos" stamping on verso would indicate. Rarely do we find these press photos autographed, but his marvelous portrait of the Babe at his craft is nicely inscribed "To Bill Bessette From Babe Ruth." There's a bit of bleeding in the inscription, but Ruth's signature is unaffected and all ink projects with 10/10 boldness. Photo measures 7.5x9.5" with some minor damage at upper right corner that causes little distraction. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Gem Mint 10. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
