Ruth was an autograph artiste. Just look at the curlicue flair of his T, the undulating n's, the capital-style lowercase e's, the bulbous B, the loopy R, the cross of the t that always crosses the h. Such elegance and beauty. This fine, JSA-graded "9" example is personalized to "Ann" and ideally located against the light background for maximum visual contrast. The studio-quality, thick-stock, matte-finish, sepia photo has wonderful Type I image clarity right down to the individual hairs by Ruth's ear, the shadowed teeth in his mouth, and the crow's feet around his eyes. A few subtle, errant lines on the brim and face appear to originate from the negative and are not part of the surface emulsion itself. Full LOA from JSA.
