    Description

    1940 Babe Ruth Signed "Academy of Sport" Certificate. Imagine the sense of accomplishment when the Babe himself signed off on your athletic skills. Ruth boldly signed (10/10) this certificate issued to a student at the "Academy of Sport," an educational promotion at the New York World's Fair. Issued to Fred Lowenbraun, the certificate (8x10" exposed/18x25.5" in frame) also includes signatures of gridiron star Ed Widseth (director of football) and famed sports agent Christy Walsh. A photo of Ruth completes the piece. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
