Classic matte-finish 7 x 9 photo of Ruth in his Yankees pinstripe pants, showing off his mighty swing, boldly signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To my good friend Jack Musante, Sincerely, Babe Ruth 3-12-47.” Archivally triple-cloth-matted in a pinstripe theme and framed to an overall size of 17 x 19; the mat is cut slightly irregularly on the left side to fit the full inscription. In very good to fine condition, with some scattered light foxing and spotting and a crease or small tear to the lower left edge; the signature and inscription are bold and attractive, ideally signed against the light background. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. The month after signing this photo, on April 27, 1947, the Yankees celebrated ‘Babe Ruth Day’ at Yankee stadium, honoring the slugger and his legendary career.
