Mid-Summer Classic Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This is a handsome piece of artwork commemorating one of the truly heartbreaking moments in baseball history when Babe Ruth came to Yankee Stadium for "Babe Ruth Day" on April 26, 1947, a little more than a year before he would die from throat cancer. In a nice bit of black-and-white artwork done in lithographer's crayon, The Babe is pictured in civilian clothes looking out toward right field at Yankee Stadium. Done by the well-known newspaper editorial cartoonist Burris Jenkins Jr., the print is signed by Ruth in spectacular fashion in the lower right-hand corner of the print, directly below the artist's signature and personalization. The whole piece is nicely framed in a black and silver-textured wood frame under glass to overall dimensions of 15-by-11 inches, with elements in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition.
Full LOA by PSA/DNA.
