    Description

    1920's Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Babe Ruth ruled every domain. If there was a category for riding cows, The Bambino would have flourished we bet. Baseball's favorite home run hitter is captured, in his Sunday best no less, on top of a cow in the offered 6.5x7.5" photo. We can imagine Colonel Ruppert or Miller Huggins cringing if they caught wind of Ruth tipping his cap while perched atop Bessie. A "Pacific & Atlantic Photos" stamp and remnants of where a paper caption once stood are found on back. A surface crack runs from about the cow's nose to the bottom. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Type 1.
