1928 Babe Ruth Signed Photograph
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,185.00
Vintage original photograph (4.5 x 6 inches, possibly trimmed to these dimensions) captures the classic Babe Ruth homerun follow-through, and is signed "To My Good Friend, Joe Bird, Sincerely, Babe Ruth" in black ink. Glued to the reverse of the photograph is a small section of a published newspaper photo (apparently this very photo), which is stamp-dated "APRIL 14, 1928." The autograph is clear and bold and grades a "7" on a scale of 1 to 10. There is some minor chipping along the edges as well as in the upper right hand corner and a crease on the upper right. These imperfections, however, do not intrude upon Ruth's image or the signature. An unusual and striking original signed photo, dating to the late 1920s, of the great Bambino in action. Very Good condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,185.00
