    1934 Babe Ruth Signed Tour of Japan Photograph, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.
    It's the most famous photograph snapped during the historic 1934 Tour of Japan, a marvelous postcard-sized (5.5x3.5") sepia image of the Babe's home run form. The piece is one of several lots within this auction consigned by a Japanese national and making its debut on American shores within this Platinum Night event.

    The superstar slugger's blue fountain pen ink is wonderfully bold, assessed at a NM-MT 8 level by the tough graders at PSA/DNA. The photo itself exhibits a minor degree of handling wear and evidence on verso of scrapbook removal. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
