1933 Babe Ruth Signed Who's Who in Baseball Page

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,480.00

1933 Who's Who in Baseball full biography page (8.5 x 11 inches) is beautifully signed by Babe Ruth ("8/9") in black fountain pen directly below his portrait image. The 1933 edition of Who's Who in Baseball has been long admired for its combination of detailed biographies and formal studio portraits. Some collectors in the 1930s realized that the design of the pages made them ideal for collecting the signatures of baseball's greatest stars, though few had the opportunity to collect them in this manner. Charles Ruffing appears on the reverse of Ruth's page and he has also signed ("9") his portrait, in blue fountain pen. Signed 1933 Who's Who in Baseball pages such as this for Ruth almost never surface. This is a very impressive signed Ruth piece which is ideal for framing. Technically Vg-Ex/Ex but with a strong Excellent or better overall appearance. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,480.00
