Circa 1934 Babe Ruth Signed Photo - PSA/DNA MINT 9!

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,280

Original photo of Babe Ruth inscribed on the front in black fountain pen "To/Mary Keegan/From/Babe Ruth." The photo is accompanied by a full LOA from PSA/DNA, which grades the signature MINT 9. The photo, which most likely dates from spring training in the 1930s, captures a nattily attired Ruth as he poses in front of an automobile. This is an outstanding autographed photo of Ruth, both in terms of the perfection of the signature (and salutation), its unique nature, as well as illustrating the desire of fans to memorialize their encounters with the immortal Babe Ruth for themselves, friends, family, and future generations. We don't know much about Mary Keegan, but we are confident she would approve that her autographed Babe Ruth photo has survived and is so highly prized in the modern collecting world! The photo (4 x 6 inches) displays a tiny tear along the upper border, a few minor surface wrinkles (only visible when viewed at certain angles), and a small ink smudge near the top (not affecting the central image area). In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and LOA from James Spence/JSA. SOLD FOR $2,280
