Original dated 1927 photograph of Babe Ruth as he is congratulated by Lou Gehrig after hitting a home run during the World Series against the Pirates. Batboy Eddie Bennett waits to congratulate the Bambino himself while the umpire and catcher look on helplessly. While the image is completely original, the photo is actually a technological marvel as it is one of the first images we have ever seen to be sent over the wire! A fantastic piece of baseball and photographic history.
