Original c. 1927 photograph of Hall of Famer Babe Ruth as he takes a mighty hack at the ball. While not clear enough to be precise, that sure does appear to be Lou Gehrig back there watching Ruth take his hacks! Issued by Underwood and stamped on the back several times, this is the only example of this image we have ever seen and it is being offered here for the first time ever!
