    Description

    1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Barnstorming Photograph. This is the first time we've encountered this great Yankee Stadium image, and we wouldn't be surprised if it's the only example on earth. Affixed to an 11x11" cardboard mount, the provided 7x9.5" image finds Gehrig and Ruth framing Christy Walsh at center, with the rest of the Babe's dark-suited squad adding heft to the proceedings. A typed caption below announces that the image was snapped just after the close of the 1927 World Series, and the Fall Classic bunting can be seen hanging from the middle deck in the background. Minor wear to the mount is evident, but only a fingernail sliver of emulsion loss over the player's right shoulder at far left distracts from an otherwise NRMT-MT rating for the photo itself.

    More information about Lou Gehrig.
