Original news photo capturing Babe Ruth and Mickey Cochrane posing together in 1934. Certified as an original Type I photograph by PSA/DNA. The two future Hall of Famers are pictured on the top step of the dugout, with another unidentified gentleman in street clothes standing between them. An "Associated Press" credit stamp appears on the reverse, along with remnants of the original paper news caption and a few additional news-service stamps. Although no year is listed, Cochrane is pictured as a member of the Detroit Tigers and Ruth as a member of the Yankees. 1934 was the only year in which they were on those respective teams in the same season. The photo (9.25 x 7 inches) displays a few light surface wrinkles and is in Very Good condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
