Description

    Early 1920's Babe Ruth Original Photograph by Paul Thompson, PSA/DNA Type 1. Exceptional image is the work of one of the most esteemed sports photographers of the day, the great Paul Thompson, whose portraits of the great Bambino rank with the most coveted in this vibrant collecting subgenre. While advanced collectors could identify this as a Thompson from the obverse alone, the attribution is assured with his personal studio stamp on reverse. Also found here is a handwritten notation from Thompson himself, who writes, "The traditional three bats for exercise matching the batsman he follows." A single light bend confined entirely to the border area at upper left corner begins and ends our condition report, as the photo is otherwise blessedly free of even the slightest visual distraction. The convergence of artist and subject in their respective primes. Measures 6.5x8.5" in its entirety. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
