Description

    1940's Babe Didrikson Zaharias Signed Large Photograph. Take an oversized photo of this legendary athlete engaged in her most noteworthy sport. Add her most desirable signature variation. The result is one of the best autographed pieces you'll ever find from the twentieth century's greatest female sports figure. The artful black and white image of Babe's flawless form measures 10.5x13.5" and is set on a cardboard mount (13x19") which is inscribed, "To Judge Phil Gilliam with Sincere best Wishes, 'Babe' Didrikson Zaharias." A hint of water staining at the bottom of the mount does not reach the 9.5/10 inscription, though a hairline tear does past through "Zaharias" to little ill effect. Interestingly, this shot was entered into a photography competition in 1947, with original entry form affixed to verso of the mount. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.

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