Rectangular cut, boldly signed by
Babe Ruth in black fountain pen (grading "10"). Encapsulated by Beckett, with the signature certified as "Authentic." This is an exceptional Ruth cut and one that would be perfect for creating a framed photo display. The cut (5 x 2.25 inches) displays a heavy horizontal fold below Ruth's signature, as well as a few light creases. In Very Good condition overall. Please Note: This piece originally appeared in REA's 2009 auction, at which time it was accompanied by a letter of authenticity from James Spence/JSA. During the authentication process for this auction, JSA declined to provide a new LOA on the cut, as did PSA/DNA. Autograph authentication is not an exact science, and opinions on authenticity can change sometimes. We are presenting this piece as is with this important disclosure. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
