    Description


    1927-28 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Barnstorming Photograph. It's probably the most recognizable photograph of this iconic home run tandem, with signed examples selling for over $50,000. For the few who might not be familiar with this image, it finds the smiling pair wearing the uniforms of their eponymous barnstorming squads, leaning on the instruments of their immortality. The photo was issued at the various stops of the tour with facsimile sentiments and signatures, and we find this example in its original, as-issued state, complete with Christy Walsh stamping on verso. Dimensions are 10x7". Some general age-toning is apparent, but there are no flaws of noteworthy distraction.
