    1927 Hunting Trip with Babe Ruth Snapshots Lot of 6 from the Herold "Muddy" Ruel Collection. After calling the pitch that the Babe clubbed for his sixtieth in 1927, Muddy signaled that there were no hard feelings by joining the triumphant Yankee on a winter hunting trip in Canada. Six snapshots (each 4x5") from that trip are affixed to a scrapbook page, with Ruth, sporting three days of beard growth, in all but one of them. We are unsure of the identities of the other gentlemen pictured, but they are almost assuredly fellow ballplayers as well. All remain in terrific condition, with only the Ruth-free photo (this one picturing Muddy himself) showing any hint of damage in the form of a half-inch chip at the lower right corner. Some fascinating one of a kind images of the game's greatest player, snapped just after his most storied season.
