    1932 Babe Ruth World Series Game 3 Home Run Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 2 - The Called Shot. Did Babe Ruth call his shot or not? It depends on who you ask. Given his propensity for rising to the occasion, we have little doubt The Bambino did indeed point to where he planned on depositing a baseball into the cheap seats at Wrigley Field. This original photograph (9x7") shows the home run hero just finishing up his swing. If the pencil caption on back is correct, it was taken during the series' highlight moment. There is grazing to the glossy finish and two rips on the white perimeter. Some corner wear is also shown. The following is written on the reverse in pencil: "Babe Ruth hitting in World Series (homer at Wrigley Field) Oct 1932 Yankees vs. Chicago Cubs 3rd game." A United Press International Photo is joined by a lighter International News Photo stamp on back. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 2.
