Schulte Auctions Sells Iconic Babe Ruth Signed Family Photos

Schulte Auctions featured many great vintage sports memorabilia in its recent August on-line auction but none more significant than five (5) images Babe Ruth signed and personalized to his sister Mamie (Mary Margaret Ruth-Mobley).   One image included Babe in a workout tank top with a personalized note to his sister dated April 4, 1928.  In addition, this lot included a separate photo of Mamie actually holding the signed Babe Ruth photo.  This lot generated 39 bids and sold for $25,928, including the 15% buyer’s premium.
 In addition, a one-of-a-kind Lou Gehrig photo signed to Mamie generated $12,860.  The five Babe Ruth signed photos and the one Lou Gehrig signed photo, all signed to Mamie, generated $62,131 total.
 
A 1958 Baltimore Colt’s team signed football went for $8,402, a book signed by Hall of Famers including Honus Wagner, Paul Waner, Pie Traynor and Clark Griffith sold for $4,959 while a Mike Curtis game-used Baltimore Colts helmet brought $4,239.
