Original c. 1920 field level action photograph of the mighty young slugger from the New York Yankees as he is coiled and ready to strike at the next pitch. An exciting new discovery that was previously unknown to exist and never before published, this is a rare look at the batting form of the greatest baseball player of all time. Recoiled like a snake with his feet together, waiting to extend and smash the next ball, Ruth appeared to have an awkward stance but when he impacted the ball, it was a thing of beauty! The offered image is a silver gelatin double weight photo (very high quality) and presents in fine condition with some minimal corner wear. While undated, this is almost certainly a 1920 image based on the uniforms. A once in a lifetime opportunity to get an amazing new Ruth discovery!
