    1943 Jack Dempsey & Babe Ruth Signed Photograph. Used to promote the Coast Guard Physical Training Course in World War II, this premium of a youthful Dempsey was frequently given out to enlisted men and often signed by the "Manassa Mauler" himself. Offered here as a 5x7" photograph, this particular piece was signed by Dempsey, but also a hodgepodge of other athletes. Signed in black, blue, and red pens and dated 9/7/43, the signatures feature standout Babe Ruth in a location set apart from the rest and set on a sepia background, grading an 8/10.

    Underneath the Dempsey signature are Mickey Walker (boxer), Ken Strong (football), and Bob Hawk (radio personality), all rating 10/10. Opposite Ruth is a Harry H. Sherman signature with the inscription "God Bless You." Very light wear consistent with the age. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
