1927 Iconic photograph of Babe Ruth about to arrive bat where he started at home plate after belting his 60th home run of the season. Greeted by Lou Gehrig and batboy Eddie Bennett, this is the only example of this photograph we have ever handled. Issued later, probably in the 1950's based on the paper/glue on the back, this is still an older restrike with some serious age to it.
