    1926 Babe Ruth Selecting Bat Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Babe Ruth has quite the dilemma on his hands. Which bat should he chose to thump his next home run with? We bet any one of those pieces of lumber would have served the Bambino quite well. This 7.25x10" shows our hero in the dugout getting ready to make that trip to the batter's box. The upper right corner has chipped away. Three rubber stampings are joined by numerous notations on back: "Acme Newspictures," "Reference Dept. May 24 1926" and "Reference Dept. Sept 23. 1926." LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
