1927 Striking image of Babe Ruth as he poses with his bat during his most famous season. One of the most famous photographs of the Bambino ever taken and from photographer Nickolas Muray, this is an extremely rare piece off the original negative and although this is a restrike from the late 1950's, this is one of the few originals we have seen in any form and by far the oldest! Condition and quality are both outstanding and the photo paper is typical of those used throughout the early post-war years (1950's). This is the finest example of this photograph we have ever handled!
