    Description

    1942 Babe Ruth Original Studio Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Most of the images of Babe Ruth involve a grin from ear to ear. Life for the Bambino was pretty good as it was filled with beer, hot dogs and a plethora of women. This 8x10" studio photo shows Ruth in his Sunday best. The only thing missing is a smile. Having settled into retirement, maybe Ruth is missing the allure of the diamond. Two punch holes and a small tear are found on the left side. Three date stamps ("Mar 19 1942" the earliest) are on the reverse along with a few notes. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $600 - up.
