1939 Photograph of Babe Ruth arriving at Ebbets Field to assume his duties as a coach for the club with hopes of being able to take it over himself in the future. Taken by photographer William C. Greene and stamped on the back, the coolest aspect of this photo is that Ruth was carrying one f his old game bats and his glove in a paper bag! Relics now worth millions literally treated like trash, but who knew back in the day! A cool image we have never seen before.
