Description

    1931 Babe Ruth and Christy Walsh Original Photograph. This lot represents material directly from "The Christy Walsh Estate," which has been in storage since his passing in 1955 and now brought to surface by his descendants. All of this correspondence have been stored in the original files Christy had since 1921 and represents his own personal mementos, business affairs etc. particularly that with Babe Ruth. The first true super agent!

    Just before the 1931 Barnstorming Tour from NY to California, this rare 8x10" photo shows Ruth preparing his jersey. Photo has lots of issues. Tape around all borders. Three considerable long tears yet the picture is intact held by the tape. Walsh notes on the reverse "Preparing for Babe Ruth's third and final exhibition tour of USA - New York to California 1931."
