The perfect storm of superior condition and rarity makes this two-page typed letter a true collecting treasure for the advanced Ruth hobbyist. On Ruth's personal letterhead, dated December 11th 1943, the letter is directed to an official with the "7th Michigan Sportmen's (sic) Boat Show." Ruth writes, in part: After reading over your proposal I gleaned from it that I would be called upon to bat out a half dozen fungoes (soft balls) into the crowd, at thirteen performances. The second page closes with one of the finest Ruth autographs in the hobby, in the rare "Geo H Babe Ruth" format. The autograph rates a perfect Gem Mint "10" from the graders at PSA/DNA, and the pages themselves exhibit light original mailing folds but no other issues of note. This item comes with a Letter of Grading & Authenticity from PSA/DNA
1943 BABE RUTH TWO-PAGE TLS WITH FULL NAME "GEO. H. BABE RUTH" SIGNATURE (GEM MINT PSA 10)
