    1931 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. When The House of David was around everyone acquiesced with beards. Even if your name was Babe Ruth. Here The Bambino, begrudgingly if you ask us, is wearing a makeshift beard. The 6x8" photo was taken during an exhibition between the Yankees and the traveling baseball team. Two captions are affixed to the reverse along with an "Acme Photo" stamp and various notes. Overall, one of the more unique Ruth photos we have handled. Regular handling wear is visible. Some staining appears on back. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
