While two of the photos capture Babe watching his partner putt and measuring his shot from the fairway, the third photo incredibly and clearly shows Babe signing an autograph book—we can actually see the “Sincerely, B...” as he is mid-autograph. The photo's original paper caption on the reverse reads: “BABE POLISHES UP GAME / Babe Ruth, Slugger of Baseballs, walks along the turf on the Belmont Manor course in Bermuda during his early monring round of golf. The Babe and his family are spending a winter vacation on the island.” The photo is dated “11/15/32”, and the back stampings lists 'ACME NEWSPICTURES, Inc.” as the news service that issued the photo. The ACME photo measures 7 x 9 inches, and the Weekly Illustrated photos measure 8 ½ x 6 ½ inches. Each photo is accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA. All photos present in Near Mint condition, with some expected distresses from newsroom use.

Group of Three 1932 Babe Ruth Golfing Original News Service Photos (All PSA/DNA Type I)
