    1920 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph by Underwood & Underwood, PSA/DNA Type 1. Babe Ruth was known for his home run swing above all else. His goal each time he settled into the batter's box was to hit the ball into oblivion. We have all seen Michael Jordan's famous Wings poster sold by Nike from the late 1980's. Who knew the Bambino beat him to the punch seventy years prior? This 6x8" original photograph was taken by Underwood & Underwood during Ruth's first year in pinstripes. Those arms and chest don't quite look as big though. Hundreds of hot dogs and plenty of beer were yet to be consumed. The image shows Ruth with both arms spread out in the locker room. Pin holes appear on all four corners. A typed caption is affixed on the reverse along with an "Underwood & Underwood" stamp, Baseball Magazine hologram and notes. Light handling wear. 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.
