Original photo capturing Babe Ruth, John McGraw, Nick Altrock, and Al Schacht prior to the opening game of the 1923 World Series at Yankee Stadium. A "Helms Athletic Foundation" credit stamp appears on the reverse. Ruth and McGraw are pictured being interviewed in a comical manner by Nick Altrock, all the while sitting on the back of teammate Al Schacht. The Yankees captured their first World Championship in franchise history in 1923. The photo (13 x 7 inches), which has been trimmed to its current dimensions, displays light surface wrinkles and scratches, a few pieces missing (none of which impact the image area), and notations written in pencil and ink on the reverse. A strip of the original paper news caption is affixed to the front. In Fair condition overall. Reserve $300.
