Circa 1940 Babe Ruth Signed Golf Photograph

Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $2,900.00

Very strongly signed original photograph (8 x 10 inches) of Babe Ruth on the golf course, dating from the early 1940s, with flawless signature and salutation, "To Mary Reilly Sincerely Babe Ruth" ("10"). Now basking in the ease of retirement, the Babe poses here with three delighted duffers. Judging by Ruth's expanding dimensions and the fashion of the period, this photograph likely dates to about 1940. Following his playing days, Ruth was an avid golfer, and it was, of course, a great thrill for fellow golfers to meet the greatest living legend of the sporting world. The photograph has a network of mild creasing and cracks, but also has flawless contrast, and very appealing appearance and imagery. Beautifully and very expensively framed to total dimensions of 16 x 18 inches. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $2,900.00
