Description


Amazing semi-glossy 10 x 8 photo of Babe Ruth, Gabby Street, Christy Walsh, Connie Mack, Nick Altrock, and John J. McGraw together at Shibe Park for the 1931 World Series, signed below in fountain pen by all six. Reverse bears a red ink stamp, "Please send page or clipping to Christy Walsh." In fine condition. Super agent Christy Walsh often arranged for his clients Ruth and McGraw to pen syndicated columns covering the World Series, and this is most likely a publicity photo he contracted to occur. Ruth, Street, Walsh, Mack, Altrock and McGraw have signed below their images in bold black fountain pen. A year later Ruth would be 'calling his shot' at Wrigley, pounding the Cubs into submission instead of posing for pictures as a spectator (and by the look on his face he was none too happy just watching!). Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with the signatures graded "MINT 9." Of the few known examples of this signed photo, this is most likely the nicest example extant. An extraordinary, crystal-clear image boasting sought-after signatures from baseball's old-time legends all gathered at the fall classic.
