Description1922 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. British royalty meets American royalty as Lord and Lady Mountbatten greet the twenty-seven-year-old Potentate of Pow before Game 2 (which ended in a tie) of the 1922 World Series between New York's finest, the Yankees and the Giants, at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan.
Lord Louis and Lady Edwina were on their honeymoon at the time. Reports of the day cite Louis as devouring six ice cream cones, four sodas, and two bags of peanuts after meeting the Babe. Possessing a voracious appetite of her own, Edwina carried on a decade-long affair with Indian prime minister Nehru and once gave another of her lovers a jeweled penis sheath from Cartier.
"Pacific & Atlantic" issue bears that service's stamp on the verso along with the date and attached newspaper clipping. Measures approximately 8x6.25" with some surface creases and right chipped corner. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
