Description

    1922 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. British royalty meets American royalty as Lord and Lady Mountbatten greet the twenty-seven-year-old Potentate of Pow before Game 2 (which ended in a tie) of the 1922 World Series between New York's finest, the Yankees and the Giants, at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan.

    Lord Louis and Lady Edwina were on their honeymoon at the time. Reports of the day cite Louis as devouring six ice cream cones, four sodas, and two bags of peanuts after meeting the Babe. Possessing a voracious appetite of her own, Edwina carried on a decade-long affair with Indian prime minister Nehru and once gave another of her lovers a jeweled penis sheath from Cartier.

    "Pacific & Atlantic" issue bears that service's stamp on the verso along with the date and attached newspaper clipping. Measures approximately 8x6.25" with some surface creases and right chipped corner. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
