Large, almost panoramic photograph of Babe Ruth as he takes batting practice in front of a sea of photographers, possibly from 1920 and maybe even his first appearance as a member of the Yankees! The image is an oversized double weight specimen that dates to around the late 1940's making it nearly an original and in pretty nice shape overall. Despite being a restrike, this is one of the finest images of Ruth we have ever seen in any form!
