Description

    1939 Babe Ruth Signed Hall of Fame Grand Opening First Day Cover, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.
    It's an interesting choice for the miniature photo that appears upon this desirable cachet, picturing Ruth wearing the last Major League uniform he ever would, as a coach for the 1938 Brooklyn Dodgers. His black fountain pen signature to the right is spectacular, easily worthy of its lofty PSA/DNA assessment. Envelope is toned by age but otherwise free of any condition concerns. Pencil writing in an unknown hand appears at lower right.

    This first day cover is one of of eleven consigned to this auction by the son of the gentleman who collected Baseball Hall of Fame signatures in person and through the mail between 1939 and the 1950's. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.
