DESCRIPTION:

(LOT 6) BABE RUTH SIGNED AND PERSONALIZED ORIGINAL FAMILY VACATION PHOTO

This is an original photograph of Babe Ruth signed and personalized to Babe’s sister, Mary (Mamie) Margaret Ruth-Morberly. This rare and unique photograph is on consignment directly from Mamie Ruth-Moberly’s family. This photo has been in the possession of the Ruth Family since the Babe gave it to Mamie and it has never been auctioned or sold until now. Babe Ruth is perhaps the most iconic American sports figure and one of the most sought and collectible signatures in the industry and this is part of one of the most unique Babe Ruth collections to surface in recent memory.

The inscription was hand-written by Babe Ruth and reads:

To my darling sister, from her brother, Babe Ruth

The untouched original photograph measures approximately 7”x9” and is hand signed in blue ink from a steel tipped fountain pen. The photo captures an aging Ruth with the family dog on vacation.

Authentication:

The photograph and signature has been examined by the experts at PSA/DNA and comes with their full letter of authenticity – I96948 and can be verified by visiting www.psadna.com .

Min Bid - $499
