1921 Photograph of Babe Ruth in uniform for the New York Yankees as he and some of his teammates are eating a baseball shaped treat presented to them by famous batboy Eddie Bennett. Bennett was one of the most famous fixtures in the Yankees clubhouse and images of him are rare, especially with Babe Ruth. The inclusion of Jack Quinn (next to Bennett) concretely dates this photo to 1921 as he left the team after that year. Issued by Underwood and Underwood from the mid 1920's, this is a really nice image with a stamp on the back.
