Babe Ruth

American professional baseball player, known as "Babe Ruth," "the Bambino" and "the Sultan of Swat". Vintage glossy 8" x 9.75" photo of Ruth late in his Yankees career, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To my good friend Ralph Woodbury, from Babe Ruth, 5-3-47.” Ruth famously set records of long standing in both single season home runs and lifetime record home runs. In very good condition, with scattered surface creases (most noticeably to his knee area), inscription and signature slightly faded with some flaking to ink, a slightly trimmed bottom edge, and a block of uniform overall toning from previous display. A classic pose of the ‘Bambino.’ Comes with PSA/DNA.
