1947 Babe Ruth Signed Burris Jenkins Print

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $3,737.50

Noted sports artist Burris Jenkins entitled this black-and-white print "Home." In it Jenkins depicts Ruth, hat in hand, looking out over Yankee Stadium on "Babe Ruth Day, April 26, 1947." The drawing is signed and inscribed by Ruth in black ink ("6") as follows: "To Ray Kilthan (?), A good friend is a real friend and that's the way I think about you. Sincerely Babe Ruth 6-27-47." The print measures 9" x 12" and has a crease in the lower right corner beneath Ruth's signature. "Drawn by Burris Jenkins" and the title "Home!" have been expertly added to the background in pencil. This is done so well it appears as made, and enhances the visual appeal of the piece. A very substantial and significant signed Babe Ruth print, capturing one of the most touching moments in the history of sport. Ideal for display. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,737.50
