    Description

    1935 Babe Ruth Welcomed by Bill McKechnie to the Boston Braves Original Photograph by Thorne Studio.
    While it broke many hearts (including, to a degree, his own) to see the Babe suited up in anything other than a Yankee uniform, we nonetheless can't help but love this fantastic image of an aging Babe in his final days as a player. Here we find skipper Bill McKechnie greeting Ruth at Spring Training. The protruding stomach needs a little work before The Bambino is ready for the final stanza of his career. This 8x10" photograph has a sticker centered on front which reads: "Manager Bill McKechnie Welcomes Babe Ruth To The Boston Braves." A "Thorne Photo" stamp and written caption appear on the reverse. Slight edge chipping is found on the white perimeter. This offering was sourced from Harry Evans' collection. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
