Lot 939: Photographer's press pass for access to Shibe Park during the 1930 World Series, 3 x 3.75, signed on the reverse in fountain pen by Ruth. The bottom of the pass is punched three times, indicating attendance at each of the games in Philadelphia. Retains the original white and red string. In very good condition, with significant brushing and fading to Ruth's signature, and some chipping to edges. Ruth's Yankees had finished third in the American League, and the Philadelphia Athletics represented the league in the 1930 World Series. The Babe did, however, make an appearance at Shibe Park and was honored as part of a group of baseball legends that also included John McGraw, Gabby Street, Christy Walsh, Connie Mack, Nick Altrock, and Ty Cobb. A desirable autograph in this unique format.
