    Description

    Early 1930's Babe Ruth Photograph by George Burke. Exceptional first-generation image is one of the most compelling photographic studies of the game's greatest star ever rendered. The 8x10" image is printing on Burke's preferred heavy stock, and bears his stamp on verso along with a typed identifier at the top edge. Some tape stains on the verso do not affect the front in any way, leaving it to present in marvelous NRMT condition. Certainly one of the most desirable photos, in terms of subject, artist and size, in the baseball collecting hobby.
