1938 Photograph of Hall of Famer Babe Ruth as he tries on his Brooklyn Dodgers uniform for the first time. The aging superstar is being helped out by fellow Hall of Famer Burleigh Grimes in the locker room in what Ruth hoped was a stepping stone to take the helm of a team of his own... a dream that would never be realized. A fantastic image from the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption.
