Lot # 751 (of 1389)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Circa 1947 Babe Ruth Signed Postcard

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,920

Postcard-size photo of Babe Ruth in a classic batting pose as a member of the New York Yankees. Inscribed and beautifully signed, "To Bob Snurnon/From/Babe Ruth," in black fountain pen (grading "9/10") in the upper left-hand corner. It is interesting to note that Babe Ruth had these photos specially produced expressly for the purpose of fulfilling autograph requests (sometimes they are found with a postcard back). The blank-back photo (3.5 x 5.5 inches) displays a number of light creases, as well as both surface paper residue and loss along the front base. In Good condition overall. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and LOA from James Spence/JSA.

SOLD FOR $1,920
