    1930's Babe Ruth Signed Newspaper Photograph. Fantastic 1930's newsprint photograph was probably taken from a magazine article centering around The Babe teaching younger players the finer points of the game.

Beautiful bold inscription and signature appear on the white portion of the page below the image: "To My Friend Bill Robbins. Sincerely, Babe Ruth" in 9/10 green ink. The photo measures 8x11" and has been matted and framed to 12.5x15.5". Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
