1922 Photograph of New York Yankees superstar Babe Ruth from early in his career, posing during a hunting trip in Maine and showing off his new weapon, a gun instead of a bat. Issued by the International News from either late 1922 or early 1923 as it is one of their weird "in-between" stamps before they moved offices in 1923. Condition is pretty nice and this is the only example we have handled of this photo.
