    Description

    1922 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph by George Grantham Bain, PSA/DNA Type 1. The Babe could entertain a crowd like nobody else. Just before he unleashed his power on the American League in 1922, Ruth put on a hitting display at an exhibition in New Orleans. This 5x7" original photograph was taken through the lens of George Grantham Bain and catches Ruth as one is probably flying out of the ballpark. Some corner chipping present along with a mark through the subject's pants and handling wear. The reverse has various stamps (two "Culver Pictures Inc.") and a typed caption. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
