1943 Action photograph of Yankee legend Babe Ruth as he smacks a homer in a War-Bond benefit game at the Polo Grounds. The catcher is Roger Bresnahan and the umpire is Bill Klem! One of the last images of Ruth in uniform actually playing, this was issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a paper caption as well. Photo has one small crease at the upper left corner but it is otherwise perfect.
