Vintage snapshot photo of Babe Ruth on the golf course, signed by Ruth in blue fountain pen (grading "7") across his image. Encapsulated by Beckett, with the signature certified as "Authentic." Dated "Sunday Feb 2, 1936" in vintage black fountain pen on the reverse. While candid snapshot photos of Ruth are plentiful, signed examples are scarce, as most people never had the opportunity to obtain his signature after the prints were developed. This is one of those rare exceptions, signed by Ruth just shortly after his retirement from baseball. The photo (3.5 x 2.5 inches) displays a slight diagonal crease in the lower right corner (not affecting the signature) and is in Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Please Note: PSA/DNA and JSA each declined to provide an LOA for this piece. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
