Fantastic matte-finish 10 x 8 photo of Babe Ruth posing with Bill Dickey, Joe Gordon, and Vern Rickard, taken while filming The Pride of the Yankees in 1942, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To My Pal Vernon, From, Babe Ruth.” In very good overall condition. Released a year after Lou Gehrig's death, The Pride of the Yankees starred Gary Cooper as the 'Iron Horse' and featured cameo appearances by many of his Yankee teammates—Babe Ruth and Bill Dickey among them. According to an annotation on the reverse of this photograph, Vern Rickard played the catcher in the film. A beautiful signed photograph, desirably associating Ruth with the film that honored his fallen teammate. Authenticated and encapsulated by PSA/DNA, and accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA.
