Large, Very Fine, Babe Ruth Signature on Card Stock, Certification by JSA George Herman "Babe Ruth" (1895-1948) legendary baseball player and one of the most recognized names to ever play the sport. In a career spanning 22 years, Ruth is considered to be the greatest player to have played the game. Offered is a wonderful signature on card stock. What impresses is the size of the signature, almost 3" in length and executed in steel-tip fountain pen, black ink on a card 2½ x 3" and double matted to 4¼ x 6". Paper exhibits minor smudges and toning on signature side, not uncommon given the years but overall was carefully archived over the decades and a fine candidate for an elaborate presentation or framed as is. Recent certification by James Spence (certification number Z90241) and comes with LOA. Be sure to see our Babe Ruth and Lou Gherig signed ball in this auction.
