    1927 Babe Ruth Signed Original Photograph - Taken Before 37th Home Run of Season. Babe Ruth created headlines wherever he went. Men and women adored him and children followed his every step. This small photo (2.5x4.25") is dated to the Yankees and White Sox tilt Tuesday, August 16, 1927. Ruth swatted his thirty-seventh homer as the Yankees copped their eightieth win of their record-setting season. This image was taken before the game and subsequently signed by Ruth in 9/10 fountain pen. Black paper marks appear on the corners, undoubtedly from removal of a scrapbook. The reverse has this written: "1927 Comiskey's Base Ball Ground, Chicago, Ill 8-16." Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
