There is something just so endearing, so innocently beautiful, about the care that vintage autograph enthusiasts put into their hobby once upon a time. Each acquired autograph, whether on an album page, index card, or paper scrap, became a sort of religious altar, worshiped with offerings of notations, captions, head shots or, as seen here, larger images. In this one, an older Ruth doffs his cap in a classic newspaper photo. Below, the 3-1/2 x 5" cut showcases Babe's "8-9" signature, "Sincerely / Babe Ruth," which boasts fabulous visual contrast. EX condition overall. Full LOA from JSA.
