Original snapshot photo of Babe Ruth, signed by Ruth on the front. Beckett Authentication Services has encapsulated the photo and certified the signature as "Authentic." The photo captures Ruth posing on the field, with the centerfield bleachers pictured in the background. Ruth's signature has been boldly scripted in blue fountain pen and grades "9." While many fans took photos of Ruth at the ballpark, few had the opportunity to have them signed after they were developed. Obviously, this fan was successful in that endeavor, leaving us with an exceptional Ruth signed photo dating from his playing days. The photo (3 x 4.75 inches) displays light corner and edge wear. In Excellent condition overall. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
