    1947 Babe Ruth Signed Letter. The greatest figure in the history of our national pastime was likewise one of its noblest servants, unfailingly generous with his time and attention to the youth of America even as his fatal illness tightened its grip. Here the Bambino offers praise to another youth leader, and sends along (not included) requested text for an upcoming meeting. This single typed page on personal letterhead concludes with a 9+/10 black fountain pen signature. Page is unevenly toned, but to no real detriment in display. Strip of tape along right edge of verso suggests scrapbook removal, but the front is unaffected. Page measures 10.5x7.25". Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
