Description

    1927 Babe Ruth Photograph from Culver Pictures Archives. Hoping to improve the Babe's on-field performance with the threat of fines for behavior unbecoming the game's highest paid superstar, Yankees team owner Jake Ruppert was reportedly told by Ruth, "I'll promise to go easier on drinking and to get to bed earlier, but not for you, fifty thousand dollars, or two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars will I give up women. They're too much fun." Engaging here in the other great National Pastime, a dapper slugger poses with some pretty starlets meeting him upon his arrival in Los Angeles to begin filming "The Babe Comes Home." Verso holds original caption and "Culver Pictures" stamping. Some wear and creasing to borders, but image area remains free of any noteworthy defects. 8x10".

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
