Of the many salutations penned by Babe Ruth that we've seen on a multitude of objects that have passed through his hands, this is easily the best. It was, after all, the Home Run that defined him - his long ball prowess setting him apart from other stars of the game, and ultimately transforming and resurrecting our National Pastime. Here in his own hand he acknowledges his identity as a "Home Run Hitter", and in typical Ruthian fashion gives a nod of encouragement and camaraderie to an aspiring slugger. This Magnificent Babe Ruth vintage steel tip pen black ink signed cut signature is inscribed "From one Home Run Hitter to Another Sincerely Babe Ruth". The perfect looking 9-10/10 Babe Ruth autograph appears on a 2 1/2" by 4 1/2" piece of white paper with one vertical fold near the center. Encapsulated and graded MINT 9 by PSA/DNA. The display possibilities are unlimited.
