1928 Babe Ruth Autographed Exhibit Card (PSA/DNA)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $5,875.00

1928 Exhibit card of Babe Ruth, signed in black fountain pen on the front. Ruth’s signature grades a strong “8/9,” and has been magnificently scripted directly upon his image. This is an extremely rare and spectacular Ruth signed Exhibit card. It is the first signed example of this classic Ruth card that we have ever offered. Despite the fact that Ruth was the most prolific signer in sports history, his signature is seldom found on Exhibit cards, making this both a rare, extremely substantial, and visually attractive Ruth signed item. The card is in particularly strong condition, with just a little light edge and corner wear, and a tiny area of barely detectable light surface paper loss on the reverse from the removal long ago of a piece of tape. In Very Good to Excellent condition. Encapsulated by PSA. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $5,875.00
