Babe Ruth Cut Signature in Framed Display

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,600

This decorative wall display is comprised of a Babe Ruth cut signature matted together with a photograph of Ruth in a batting pose. The signature, beautifully scripted in black fountain pen on a segment of a lined index card, grades "10" and contrasts exceptionally well against the light background of the card. The index-card segment (2.25 x 1.5 inches) is in Excellent to Mint condition and has been affixed to a larger, cream-colored sheet measuring 4.5 x 2.75 inches. The photo (7.5 x 9.5 inches), which is matted above the signature, is in apparent Mint condition. This is an outstanding Ruth signature example, made all the more appealing by its attractive manner of presentation. Total dimensions: 14.5 x 20.5 inches. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,500+. SOLD FOR $3,600
