Babe Ruth Signed 1945 New York Giants Program
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $2,350.00
1945 New York Giants program, for a game against the Boston Braves, signed on the interior by Babe Ruth. Ruth has boldly scripted his name in pencil, grading “10,” on the scorecard page for the Boston Braves. A piece of vintage clear tape, now slightly yellowed, covers the Ruth signature. (This was a common practice many years ago for protecting signatures.) Ruth attended many games during his retirement ,and this program was no doubt signed at one of them at the Polo Grounds in 1945. The sixteen-page program is in low grade but is entirely present, though the monetary value of this long-saved family keepsake is entirely represented by the Ruth signature page. All of the naturally brittle pages are detached from the spine and display numerous minor tears including minor paper loss, but the program is complete and the Ruth signature is not affected by any of the flaws. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
