Description

    Late 1920's Babe Ruth Glass Plate Negative. Previously unknown image of the Babe was sourced with the Gehrig and Cobb glass plate negatives in this auction, all of which appear to date to the same general period. The Yankees only wore their famous nickname on the chest of their road jerseys for four seasons, 1927-30, and Ruth is wearing that style here. This Murderer's Row-era masterpiece measures 4x5" and shows a bit of wear at the upper edge, evident in the positive image derived from it. Photographer is unknown. Negative is capable of producing high-quality photographic images.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $800 - up.
