Description

    1920's Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. We are safe in assuming this 8x10" photo was taken before Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig weren't on speaking terms. The home run duo had a mutual respect for one another but that was challenged when Ruth made a disparaging remark about Gehrig's mother. The offered image captures the Hall of Famers as bosom buddies and was taken during Spring Training. The corners are rounded and there is a slight tear near the middle right edge. Two "Keystone View Co." stamps are found on the reverse along with three stain spots. A few minor edge runs are located on the top portion of the perimeter. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
