    Circa 1915 Babe Ruth Rookie-Era Original Photograph by Paul Thompson, PSA/DNA Type 1. Wherever he went, Babe Ruth was at the center of the action. Children emulated The Babe and women blushed at his mere presence. While most remember Ruth's home run prowess as a member of the New York Yankees, he did begin with the Red Sox in 1914. This fine 6x8" photo shows Ruth warming up before a game. Henry Yee's research dates the photo to "1915" according the PSA/DNA letter - Ruth's first real action--he appeared in only four games in 1914. The full body shot features Ruth in uniform. Two notations are on back: "Photo by Paul Thompson" and "Ruth Boston Americans" (pencil). Minimal surface wear on front. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
