1948 Photograph of Babe Ruth as he waves to his fans but proclaims that he is weak and has no strength. What Ruth did not know (because his family and doctors kept it from him) is that he was dying! A poignant image from the Associated Press and stamped on the back with a nice paper caption as well.
