    Description

    Circa 1921 Babe Ruth Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Babe Ruth seemed to set and then re-set the home run mark in the 1920's. Yes, Ruth's ability to hit the longball changed the game forever. This photo was captured around the time he hit his 55th home run of a season. He did club 59 homers in 1921 so this 6.5x8.5" image may originate from that season. A caption is situated on the reverse as is a "Keystone View Co. Inc. of N.Y." stamp. Edge chipping appears on the glossy finish. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
