Huge 1921 photographic display advertising the opening of the baseball season in New York in which the main attraction was the return to the diamond of Babe Ruth. Smaller inset photo shows Ruth standing head to toe while the larger background image shows Ruth taking a big turn around first after making one of his five hits! Issued by the Elliott News Service, this is a monster piece of early Ruth photography that presents well with some light scrapbook residue on the back and a large (separate) paper tag describing the action.
