Unique set of four photographs from the estate of Christy Walsh showing Babe Ruth in uniform during a barnstorming trip to California. One photo shows Ruth in uniform and showing a small child how to hold a bat if he wants to hit homers. The child is Christy Walsh Jr. the son of his agent Christy Walsh. The other three photos support the date and event as one has some incredible stamps and dates helping to pinpoint the location and time of the photo with Ruth pinpointing it to Jan 1932 in California during a barnstorming tour! Each of the photos are in great shape the Ruth image is being offered to the public for the first time ever as far as we know. Four images total in great shape.
