Rare Babe Ruth Signed Auto Photo, Framed. Autograph PSA
The Great Bambino!
We always say that the foundation of any great sports memorabilia collection is 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 collection. The image features Ruth in-action (circa 1926-27) with the Yankees. 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. 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 iconic signature in a more perfect place. The blue ink contrasts perfectly off the white 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 an iconic piece to their collection.
