    1924 Babe Ruth Barnstorming Photograph. A thrilling image that ranks among the finest we've seen of the larger-than-life New York Yankees legend. Never before have we encountered a photograph snapped from this vantage point, offering us the incredible opportunity to stare down the most fearsome slugger in the game from the perch of a pitcher's mound. Furthering the appeal is the scene behind the Babe, with dozens of fans peering onto the action from behind a shield of chicken wire at the Dunsmuir, California ballpark where this photo was snapped on October 22, 1924. The photograph remains in top condition, both in image clarity and in terms of wear, or the utter lack thereof. Stamping on verso relates to a local California photographer and a Los Angeles athletic foundation. Measures 6.5x8.5" in size.
