    1947 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph - Signed Seven Days before Babe Ruth Day. Even until the very end, Babe Ruth had a heart of gold. The last few years of his life were lived in and out of the hospital as Ruth battled the cancer which would eventually claim his life. While the Babe was starting to slow down, the requests for autographs never waned. True to form, Ruth hit a home run when he signed this 8x10" photo a youngster. Ruth signed the corner of this black-and-white photo and inscribed "To My Pal Joseph Daily from" and dated the penning "4-20-47." This was signed only seven days before Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium. A few minor waves and creases appear on the photo. The penning rates 8.5/10 and pays tribute to Ruth's final stanza. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
