Imposing full-length portrait of Babe Ruth

Magnificent vintage matte-finish 16.25 x 20 photo of Babe Ruth at the plate in his Yankees road uniform, following the trajectory of another monster blast, circa 1933-34, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Bob Schrecengost, from Babe Ruth, 1947." Professionally restored to near fine condition, with expert repairs to two tears at the top, touch-ups to the dark upper seating area, and flattening to multiple horizontal creases. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.

A truly ‘Ruthian-sized’ photograph of the beloved baseball icon, shown here in dramatic post-swing anticipation in the later stages of his record-breaking career. Oversized examples of Ruth displaying his fabled Yankees batting power are quite rare and highly sought by collectors—an excellent opportunity to own a prodigious Babe Ruthautographed photo.
