So prolific at his own trade, Babe Ruth was used as the measuring stick for occupations elsewhere, regardless of the fact that Ruth never did them himself. The New York Times once called Enrico Caruso “The Babe Ruth of Operatic Tenors.” Time saw fit to title Willie Sutton “The Babe Ruth of Bank Robbers.” Counting his profits and championship trophies, Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf referred to Michael Jordan as “The Babe Ruth of Basketball.” At the risk of redundancy, we offer “The Babe Ruth of Autograph Displays.” Framed to 17x15, this arrangement is headlined by Ruth’s black-ink steel tip fountain pen cut signature, a post-1927 scripting (as evidenced by the absence of quotation marks around “Babe”) which projects (“8”) potency as it trumps all others in your collection. Accenting the display are (2) black-and-white photos of the unmistakable Bronx icon. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA. This item has a reserve (estimated value: $2500-$4000).
