    1940's Babe Ruth Signed Large Photograph. The image is a classic, but rarely encountered in such impressive dimensions. The 14x11" batting shot is neatly inscribed across the expanse of the Babe's prodigious belly, reading, "To my friend Buck, Sincerely Babe Ruth." Some damp-staining affects a portion of the inscription but remains clear of the signature. Ink averages 7/10 overall. Photo has a tear at right edge and some scattered staining beyond the aforementioned instance, but the overall aesthetics remain strong. Simple frame appears to be a later addition. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

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