Description:
Exceptional Circa 1916 Babe Ruth Culver Service Photograph, Type 1. Perhaps the most desirable Ruth photograph on the face of the earth. This simply exceptional photographic portrait captures the young Boston Red Sox pitcher with razor-sharp clarity, staring intently and directly into the photographer's lens. Fantastic interplay of light and shadow captures every line of the Babe's face as he stands on the steps of the dugout at Fenway. The experts at PSA/DNA inform us that this 6.5x8.5" image is all the more remarkable for the complete borders, usually missing from images of this era. Very light wear is evident at the outermost edges of the photo, certainly nothing that has any noteworthy effect upon the tremendous visual appeal. "Culver Service" stamping on verso. Confirmed as "Type 1" by PSA/DNA. CGC grade: Fine.
