Rare Babe Ruth Signed Auto Photo, Framed. Autograph Beckett BAS
The Great Bambino!
We always say that the foundation of any great sports memorabilia collection is, of course, a Babe Ruth autograph. Presented here is one such item in gorgeous condition!
We were pleasantly surprised to come across this classic Babe Ruth signed photo, and we are proud to add it to our rare memorabilia collection. The image features Ruth during his training days with the Yankees, most likely in Florida where the Yankees would hold their pre-season workouts. Ruth’s signature is presented in bold blue fountain ink.
What makes this piece even more special is that it is not inscribed to anyone. Generally signed photos from the period were "personalized" to a specific person and presented as a gift or token of appreciation. Indeed, it was a special souvenir to be cherished by the recipient, but in today’s hobby, such unwanted writings drastically effect the autograph value. Luckily in this case, we have a nice, clean example with no other writing!
This premium photo measures 5.5” x 3.5” and “The Babe” could not have placed his flawless signature in a more perfect place. The blue ink contrasts perfectly off the cream background, and you can truly appreciate the sense of pride that Ruth took in his penmanship.
As the biggest name in sports collecting, the value in Babe Ruth memorabilia has continued to rise. Collectors have been paying record prices for original cards and high-grade signatures. Signed photographs like this are extremely scarce, and do not surface as often as cut signatures, or even single-signed baseballs. Once offered for sale, an item like this will not last long, as the hobby’s most astute collectors waste no time in adding such a piece to their collection.
We've placed the photo in archival mylar to further protect it and had it custom framed and double-matted under ultraviolet-protected plexiglass to further safeguard it for future generations to enjoy. The result is one beautiful Babe Ruth presentation piece that is ready to be placed on your favorite wall for all to see.
