    1923 Babe Ruth & President Warren G. Harding at Yankee Stadium Grand Opening Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. A twenty-eight-year-old Babe Ruth reaches over the red/white/blue bunting to shake the hand of President Warren G. Harding who was on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the brand new Yankee Stadium. Harding has a hearty laugh and Ruth plays to the paparazzi while donning his classic pinstripes. Dignitaries and fans in the background all appear to be focused on the two main attractions. Later, Ruth would christen his new home with a monumental blast. The image exhibits some light rippling on the borders but is otherwise spectacular. "International News Reel" paper caption with "4-24-23" date is affixed on the verso along with a "April 27, 1923 NEA" stamp. Measures 9.75x7.75". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
