    1925 Babe Ruth Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The paper caption on verso dates the image and makes sense of the Bambino's unusual hand signal--the crossed fingers of the right hand and single finger of the left are intended to create the Roman numeral for eleven, his season home run count at the time the image was snapped. It's a marvelous, playful image of the beloved slugger, the first of its kind we've encountered. Dimensions are 8.5x6.5", and nearly all wear is confined to the white border area, with light wrinkling in the image area only apparent upon close inspection. Stamping on verso is from "Keystone View Co. Inc. of N.Y." LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
