Classic glossy 8 x 10 photo, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To my friend Benny Baxter, From ‘Babe’ Ruth, Jan 15th 1928.” In very good condition, with a few moderate horizontal creases, scattered soiling, and a significant surface abrasion to upper right. Baxter was one of Ruth’s good friends, and during the off-season he would travel to North Carolina to go duck hunting with Baxter as a guide. This particular image of Ruth was taken in early 1927 by Sussman and used on the box cover of one of the many products he endorsed, Babe Ruth All-American Underwear. A desirable publicity image dating to the prime of his career. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
