(LOT 1752)
c.1940s-1950s Babe Ruth 8" x 10" PSA Encapsulated Type ll Culver Pictures Authentic Photograph of the Bambino Signing Another Ball

Rarely one to refuse and autograph, Babe Ruth signed thousands of pieces over his career, though far fewer than the current players' penning, and they reamin some of the most sought-after relics from the early days of baseball. Offered is just that, Babe Ruth halting for a photo of him signing a baseball for one of his millions of adoring fans. Dressed in a pinstripe uniform and a Yankees cap, Ruth sits at the edge of the dugout signing with his fountain pen as a straw-hatted gentleman stands eagerly by. This 8" x 10" Type 2 photograph shows signs of aging with surface abrasions and wrinkling along the borders. The back shows three "Culver Picture Inc." stamps, minor sticker residue and a pencil notation with light aging. This is a great example of Ruth's generous nature and willingness to please his fans, no matter the age.
