    1948 Babe Ruth Signed Government Postcard. Babe Ruth helped fuel the autograph industry like nobody else. When asked, Ruth was almost always an accommodating autograph conquest. Even until his final days, Ruth was known to create magic with the pen and had unmistakable penmanship. Presented is a government postcard signed by Ruth during his final year of life. With a postmark stamp of "Jun 13 1948" is this paper. Ruth gracefully penned "Sincerely" and his name in 10/10 blue ink. One minor crease touches the autograph, but otherwise a stellar late-life signature from the most accomplished athlete of them all. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
