The photograph is crisply signed and inscribed in a brilliant blue fountain pen "To Buster Bates from Babe Ruth."
The IMAGE_is matted and framed to an overall size of 13.25 x 15.25inches with scattered creasing, affecting a portion of the inscription, and a few trivial tone spots.
Babe Ruth is widely regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and his lifetime total of 714 home runs at his retirement in 1935 was a record for 39 years.
Ruth's large and bold signature is surprisingly clean and mostly unaffected by any flaws.
Coupled with the rarely seen full swing pose and the spring training setting in full Yankee regalia, this represents a superb piece of memorabilia from the most famous baseball player of them all.
