Description

    1920 Babe Ruth First Year in Pinstripes Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Today's ballplayers get cars or trophies for their on-field excellence. How was Babe Ruth celebrated during his first season in New York? With a slab of bacon of course. This 6.5x8.5" original photo is a rarity as it was from Ruth's first season with the pinstriped crew. Ping Bodie is handing the newcomer a slab of bacon. Brodie was Ruth's first roommate with the Yankees and came with this response when asked about rooming with the larger-than-life figure. "I don't room with Babe. I room with his suitcase." The reverse includes: caption tape affixed, hologram, and "International News Photos" stamp. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
