The best of both worlds! An original 1921 image of young Babe Ruth in uniform for the New York Yankees that was then re-used by a newspaper to make a piece of Ruth art in his banner year of 1927 and stamped on the back! A fantastic original that is one of the only examples of this classic photo we have seen in any form and the artwork from a skilled newspaper man makes it something that is completely unique. Condition and quality are both out of this world!
