Babe Ruth Signed Autographed Type I Original 1933 Photo

The offered 8” x 10” TYPE I photograph is a classic image of Babe Ruth in the dugout covered sympathetically in a blanket. This is an outtake from that session showing the Babe sitting with a famed Philadelphia sportswriter.  To the left of Babe Ruth is his future Hall of Fame teammate, Joe Sewell. 

The 8x10" is personalized, "To C.W Duncan From Babe Ruth, Aug 12 1933." That day, the Yankees had double-header vs.  The Philadelphia A's, and despite the midsummer date, the Bambino is depicted in the dugout wrapped in a blanket. Ruth had a pair of hits and an RBI in the twin-bill, and just 19 days later, he announced his retirement from baseball.

The photo would rate a  7 out of 10 with some small creases on the bottom corners with minuscule paper loss on top/right edge. The autograph would rate a 7 – 8 out of 10.

 Included is JSA LOA verifying that the black steel-tip fountain signature and inscription are all in the hand of the pinstriped legend.
