A photo-postcard of the Babe, boldly signed in blue fountain pen. Ruth was inundated with fan mail right up until the very end and he never wanted to let anyone down. This photo postcard, measuring 3 ½" x 5 ¼", was used by Ruth to respond to well wishers and autograph requests in the last few years of his life. Anytime you see this autographed image you can be assured it came directly from the Babe, and he always signed in the same location on the image (upper left). The signature received a grade of NM-MT "8" from PSA/DNA and the postcard itself is in excellent condition. This item comes encased in a PSA/DNA holder for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
Presented here is a signed original snapshot of the world's most celebrated diamond icon of all time, George Herman Ruth. This 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" sepia-toned photograph is rare, indeed in that it depicts the Babe in a Boston Braves uniform. Though his boyish aura had long-since vanished and the trademark Yankee pinstripes had been replaced, Ruth "constants" captured here include his trademark sizable gut and cookie-shaped face. Angled on the image's lower portion, Ruth's blue-ink signature ("8") highlights the visual treasure. The item has retained its original gloss and presents minimally at the EX/MT level, with small, peripheral creases and crazing limited to the white borders. This item comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA, Steve Grad and Zach Rullo, and an LOA from JSA/James Spence Authentication.
The sad last months of the great Bambino were fading away as the Yankees legend made his final trip to his beloved second home of Florida. From The Golden Strand Hotel in Miami Beach, Ruth mailed this autographed 3 ½" x 5 ½" photograph to an admirer in California. This photo-postcard of the Babe was very boldly signed in blue fountain pen and was graded a MINT "9" by PSA/DNA. Also included here is the original mailing envelope, addressed in Babe's distinctive script and postmarked February 23, 1948 from North Miami Beach. This item comes encased in a PSA/DNA holder for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
