Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey Signed Original Photograph International Newsreel Photo
Graded PSA 8
Ruth Auto: 9
Dempsey Auto: 7
Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey were two of the biggest stars of the 1920s, and to this day, remain two of the greatest athletes in all of American Sports - Ruth dominated the diamond and Dempsey dominated the ring.
This unique, original photo features the American icons "squared up" promoting the Jack Sharkey vs. Young Stribling fight in Miami, Florida. Fought on February 27, 1929, this was Jack Dempsey's debut as a promoter. With Yankees Spring Training being held in Florida before the 1929 season and Ruth constantly on his famous Barnstorming tours, what better way to hype up a fight than having the two biggest American athletes of the time!
An incredible period piece with two outstanding signatures. Signed in vintage blue fountain ink, both autographs are extraordinary, and Ruth's one of the finest we've seen on a photograph. The photo measures 5.5" x 7.5" and features its original International Newsreel stamp on the reverse.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA
