Postcard-size photo of Babe Ruth in a classic batting pose as a member of the New York Yankees.

The photo (3.5 x 5.5 inches) displays a few light surface wrinkles (only visible when viewed at certain angles) and is in Excellent condition. This is a classic Ruth-signed photo featuring an exceptionally bold signature. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,851.25
