The Babe Ruth near-perfect pencil signature is “breathtaking, to say the least,” according to the Steiner Auctions site, and measures almost 3″ in length. The autographed program is professionally framed with pinstripe matting. The signature comes with a Letter of Grading & Authenticity from PSA/DNA and Beckett. Beckett has graded the signature a 9 MINT, while PSA/DNA did not grade leaving room for a perfect 10 Grade still an option. A Gem Mint 10 Babe Ruth Autograph cut can fetch in excess of $10,000.

Spirited bidding is expected on this early New York Rangers program signed by Yankees titan Babe Ruth, a rare collectible that ties two great franchises of New York sports.

According to the Steiner Auctions site, “it is assumed that the program has been cut for display purposes although we have not removed the item from the frame and cannot say for certain.”
