(LOT 230)
1943 Babe Ruth "World Series" Signed 8" x 10" Photo PSA 8 NM-MT

SULTAN OF SWAT!!! The immortal Babe Ruth signs this 8" x 10" photo of the slugger handing off 125 prints of the 1943 World Series film targeted for the soldiers and sailors fighting World War II overseas. Sent from the U.S. Army O.M.P.S. Film Exchange USA to the U.S. Army O.M.P.S. Film Exchange in New Delhi, India, Ruth's timeless script boldly reads: "Best Wishes, From Babe Ruth", penned in black fountain pen and graded a desirable PSA 8 NM-MT. Ruth steps up with teammate Johnny Murphy and personally hand delivers these "Baseball Classic" World Series reels. With a big smile, Ruth knows these reels will go to good use when the soldiers take part in viewing their heroes on film. This is just one of the many images of Ruth showing his love and appreciation for the military, turning back the clock to an era when the immortal Babe captured the hearts of his captivated fan base!
