Starting Bid: $25.00

All good things must come to an end and in the case of Babe Ruth, this was it. Seen here signing his contract to wear the pinstripes one last time, the next contract he would sign would be with the Boston Braves of the National League. Ruth seems happy and like nothing was wrong, but the look on Jacob Ruppert's face seems to indicate that he knew this was the end. Photo is bold and clear with the photo also in nice shape with note to a chip on the upper right corner. An important photograph from an equally important moment in baseball history, this was issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back with a full paper caption, detatched but present.
