Description

    1938 Babe Didrikson Handwritten Letter. The greatest female athlete of the twentieth century, the gifted Babe pens a charming personal note to her folks back home in Beaumont, Texas. She references the sport for which she's best known, "I have been playing a lot of golf..." and actually writes the letter on Brentwood (CA) Country Club letterhead, where she clearly spent a great deal of time. The remainder of the letter discusses family friends, and is signed "Lotsa love, Y.B.G. [Your Baby Girl?], Babe." The single page of correspondence remains in stellar NRMT condition, with neither the paper nor the ink showing any sign of age or wear. The included mailing envelope is equally intriguing, as the legendary athlete signs her most desirable "Babe Didrikson" autograph in the return address field, then adds another signed surname as she writes her parents' names in the forwarding address field. Vintage tape repairs to the upper left corner of the envelope nip at each edge of Babe's signature, but do not obscure it from view in any way. LOA from PSA/DNA.

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