Lot 1121: Glossy 10 x 8 press photo of Ruth receiving a 'Loving Cup' award in 1932, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To my good friend Charles, Sincerely, Babe Ruth." Reverse bears AP and Keystone-Underwood ink stamps. Includes the press caption noting that the photo is from April 13, 1932, when Ruth visited and spoke to the students of Northeast High School in Philadelphia; he had hit two home runs the day before in the Yankees-A's season opener. Scattered creases with some thin cracks to finish, and slight irregular ink adhesion, otherwise fine condition. Shown surrounded by adoring fans and signed with a warm, friendly inscription, this wonderful photo from Ruth's playing days embodies his larger-than-life status and personality.
