Listing Details

Our consignor purchased this in one of our auctions in 2012. This autograph was so nice and special, that I remember it well. So scarce to find in this quality, offered is a stunning circa 1924 Babe Ruth in quotes autograph. The Babe signed this on a very clean 3 3/8 x 2 thick stock white business size card in flowing and bold black fountain pen. Ruth autographs from this era in his career are at least 50 times, if not 100 times, scarcer than the autographs signed by him in the mid-1930s. Earlier Ruth autographs remain tremendously undervalued as the hobby does not put the proper valuation on vintage career signed items, as opposed to items signed after the player has retired. This is a truly special and choice Babe Ruth autograph that does not come to market very often at all. JSA LOA (full).
