(LOT 224)
Babe Ruth Signed 3-1/2" x 5" Photo Postcard PSA/DNA 8 NM-MT

SIGNED BABE!!! Presented here is an imposing 3-1/2" x 5" Babe Ruth signed image with the outstanding autograph graded a PSA 8 NM-MT. Signed in bold blue fountain pen and revealing 9 Mint aesthetics, this ultra-popular Thorne image was first introduced to the baseball community in 1928, with Thorne standing alongside George Burke as one of the most respected baseball photographers during the late 1920s/1930s. Indeed, any vintage photo or autograph collector is extremely familiar with this iconic illustration that was placed on these 1940s postcards for Ruth to sign for his seemingly infinite fan base. Most impressive is the fact that Ruth penned his signature in a perfect area, with the upper left quadrant white background maximizing the awe-inspiring aesthetics of this highly coveted Babe Ruth autograph. The classic spring training batting image literally jumps off the photo, revealing magnificent eye appeal as the Bambino has just completed his mighty swing. Ruth's unparalleled standing as baseball's greatest all-time player solidifies the necessity for any serious hobbyist to add a splendid Sultan of Swat autograph to their esteemed gathering, such as this Cooperstown worthy marvel!
