Vintage large-format photograph (14 x 11 inches) of Babe Ruth as a member of the New York Yankees, circa mid 1920s. Ruth is pictured at the plate in his follow-through swing as he takes batting practice prior to a game. While this is not an original photo (it most likely dates to the 1940s), it is notable both for its size and the wonderful image of Ruth at the plate. A few small pencil notations and a small strip of adhesive residue along the top border are displayed on the reverse; otherwise the photo, printed on heavy paper stock, remains in Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $100. Estimate (open).
