Some of the rarest images of Hall of Famer Babe Ruth are the ones from before and after his stint with the Yankees. Enter this image which shows Ruth in 1938 as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers and wearing a rare uniform the team only donned for one season to promote the upcoming Worlds Fair. Ruth still looks young enough to slam one home and poses with his bat, but old age is catching up to the Sultan of Swat as he takes a second to wipe down and rest. One of the best images of Ruth in Dodgers uniform we have ever seen and it is in fine condition with some really beautiful artistic enhancements to the background for publication.
