Dorothy Ruth (1921-1989) was actually Babe's daughter by his mistress Juanita Jennings, yet up until her 59th birthday in 1980, Dorothy always believed that her adopted mother Helen was her birth mother. Significantly, this touching tribute to Babe and Dorothy's relationship is date-stamped to January 15, 1929—just four days after Helen died in a house fire. From then on, Dorothy was raised by Babe and his second wife Claire. The Central Press photo measures 7-1/8" x 8-3/8" and rates EX/MT to NM. Encapsulated as Type I by PSA/DNA.
