    1927 Babe Ruth 60th Home Run Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. The paper caption on verso sets the scene: "Babe Ruth surpasses his former home run record by hitting 60th homer. Yankee Stadium, New York City. Photo shows Babe Ruth reaching home plate, and is greeted by Lou Gehrig, with back to camera, just as Babe made his 60th home run." This is unquestionably one of the most desirable Ruth images ever made available to the collecting public. "Acme Newspictures" stamping. Dimensions 7.75x9.5". LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
