Virtually impossible to find in a signed photo of this quality, this 11x14" photo is from Tad Dorgan, and inscribed to Christy Walsh, who served as Babe Ruth's agent. Dorgan's works often sell in the thousands, and he is considered to be on the same level as Willard Mullin and Robert Ripley. The signature reads, "To Christy, With fondest memories and warmest regards, Tad." This piece came from Helms Museum, where much of Walsh's collection went, and it is in EX-MT condition aside from a small crease in the top corner, with "Monrach Studios NY" written in pencil in the bottom border.
