A collection of never before seen and very personal Babe Ruth signed photos is hitting the auction block this month.

The five Ruth photos, several dating from late in the Babe’s life, along with a signed, first edition copy of The Babe Ruth Story have been consigned directly from Mamie Ruth-Moberly’s family.

Mamie Ruth died in 1992.  She was Babe Ruth’s only sister.

In addition to the Babe Ruth signed photos, the family also consigned a Lou Gehrig signed photo.

Other highly  vintage signed items from Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Napoleon Lajoie and Jack Dempsey are featured in this month’s Schulte auction.

Also on the block are a game-used Baltimore Colts helmet from former All-Pro Middle linebacker, Mike Curtis, a Cal Ripken Jr. 1995 game-used signed bat from his personal collection and the Steve Carlton game-used signed glove from his historic 27 game winning record back in 1972 and a Lenny Moore Baltimore Colts game-used road jersey, circa 1958-61.

Many other high profile signed and unsigned collectible items from Don Mattingly, Joe DiMaggio, Rod Gilbert, Yogi Berra, Brooks Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and current stars such as Joe Mauer and Brian Roberts are featured.

Bidding closes Tuesday, August 31.  To register, visit the Schulte website or call  (410) 350-6226.
