    Description

    1932 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Spring Training & Contract Signing Original Snapshots Lot of 12. Luckily for today's collectors, one fan obsessed with spring training collected numerous spring training photographs from the 1930's and 1940's that we are proud to offer in this auction. This particular lot may be the cream of the crop, however, as it consists of a dozen shots of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Measuring mostly just under 3x4," the first seven photos are a progression showing Ruth with Jacob Ruppert and Mrs. Ruth, signing "The Great Bambino's" 1932 contract extension. Two additional shots show Ruth after a spring training game, followed by another pair of Gehrig signing for children. The last photo measures 2.75x4.5" and shows the Yankees on the field at Waterfront Park in St. Petersburg, Florida.
