Babe Ruth Signed Real-Photo Postcard - PSA/DNA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $6,000
Postcard-size photo, capturing the "Sultan of Swat" in a classic batting pose as a member of the Yankees, boldly signed by Babe Ruth in blue fountain pen. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signature graded MINT 9. Ideally, Ruth's signature appears in the upper left corner of the photo and contrasts exceptionally well against the light background. 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 photo (3.5 x 5.5 inches) displays a few light-to-moderate creases (most are only visible when viewed at certain angles) and is in Very Good to Excellent condition. This is a classic Ruth-signed photo featuring an exceptionally bold signature. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $3,000+. SOLD FOR $6,000
