Original photo of Babe Ruth as a member of the New York Yankees in 1922 taken by noted baseball photographer George Grantham Bain. Encapsulated and certified as an original Type I George Grantham Bain photograph by PSA/DNA. The image captures Ruth's follow through after a mighty swing during warmups in New Orleans. A typed caption on the reverse reads "Babe Ruth knocking a homer at New Orleans - Mch 21, 1922." A Bain credit stamp and "Culver Service" stamp appear on the reverse. This is a striking early Ruth Yankees image. The photo (5 x 6-7/8 inches) displays a crease in the lower left and lower right corners, as well as tape residue in the lower corners on the reverse. In Very Good condition overall. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Reserve $500.
