Lot Number: 217

Description: Fine Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx autographed Tour of Japan photograph c.1934 (PSA/DNA 7 NM) Sepia toned approx. 3.75"x4.5" photograph showing the Hall of Fame trio during their famed goodwill Tour of Japan which took place in 1934. Signed "Babe Ruth" with his autograph having partially faded while the "Lou Gehrig" and "Jimmie Foxx" signatures remain strong and bold. The signatures have been graded "NM 7" average/overall by PSA. Removed from an album and there are some creases/wrinkles visible along with some small spots of surface paper loss on front. A portion of the area which pictures Ruth (and over which he has signed) appears to have sustained some more pronounced damage which was stabilized with some glue/adhesive. An exceedingly rare piece, with regard to both the original image and the fact that is signed by all shown, and one of only a few known. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA (7 NM): Signatures: NM, Photo: VG

Estimated Price Range: ($40,000-$60,000)
