Description

  • A wonderful Babe Ruth signed photograph, dated circa 1929.
  • Featuring a truly exceptional example of his signature.

This vintage full-length publicity photograph measures 8 by 10 inches.

It depicts Ruth wearing his New York Yankees road uniform, in full swing during batting practice at spring training in Florida.

We believe the unusual angle of the photo helps to date the image circa 1929.

The Yankees introduced numbers to their jerseys in 1929, and this portrait was likely taken to show off the new number '3' on Ruth's back.

The photograph itself features creasing to left side (affecting portion of inscription; a couple of small creases lightly affecting last name of signature), scattered light creasing to remainder of photo, and a few trivial tone spots.

It's crisply signed and inscribed in a brilliant blue fountain pen "To Buster Bates from Babe Ruth."

Ruth's large and bold signature is remarkably 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.
