Among the greatest photographs of Babe Ruth are those where he is surrounded by his fans and engages them, presenting himself as a man of the people. Here you see the man himself as he emerges from his car to an endless sea of fans and you can tell by the smile on Ruth's face that he loves it! A silver gelatin original issued by Acme and stamped on the back, this is a nice image with some handling wear being the only flaw. One of the better images of Ruth with his fans we have seen.
