    Early 1920's Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. A youthful Babe shares a laugh with a buddy, to whom he signs this crystal-clear 8x10" image in strong black fountain pen ink. The inscription reads, "To My Friend Elmer Feserein, From Babe Ruth." The inscription and signature rate a technical 8/10 in boldness, though Ruth's autograph does not contrast particularly well against the dark background. In very faded ink at the top of the image, all but invisible except upon close inspection, is a second inscription and signature from Feserein, who signs this fine piece over to a friend of his. A small repaired tear is found in Feserein's cap, and a small crease appears well below Ruth's autograph, but these factors cause no concern and do not diminish the terrific eye appeal. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
