Beautiful 1930 photograph of the great Babe Ruth posing with New York Yankees owner (and fellow Hall of Famer) Jacob Ruppert. Quality silver gelatin image is from 1930 and dated on the back with a paper caption from the International News describing that this was a handshake cementing Ruth's new $160,000 contract signing! Condition is perfect and the quality is outstanding making this a perfect 10/10. This is one of only two known examples of this photograph we have ever handled with this being the superior specimen!
