Stunning 1932 portrait of the Babe
Description                           Estimate: $3,000+          

Stunning glossy 5 x 7 portrait of Ruth in his Yankees uniform, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To my Pal Alan Gould, Jr., From Babe Ruth, Dec 25-1932.” Attractively double-matted and framed to an overall size of 10.5 x 12.5. In fine condition, with a few surface creases and some light contrast to a single word of the inscription. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. This was inscribed to the son of Alan Gould, Sr., a longtime sportswriter and editor for the Associated Press who had been a correspondent at the famous 1932 World Series just a few months earlier—one that has gone down in history for Ruth’s legendary ‘called shot’ in game three. Reflecting on the veracity of the tale years later, Gould would say, ‘The Babe unquestionably called his shot. I was there.’ In addition to its association with an iconic baseball moment, this is a beautifully captured portrait of Ruth.
