Stunning c. 1932 portrait photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees in full uniform and posing against the dugout wall for a lucky photographer. The quality of the image is absolutely breathtaking as Ruth takes the time to hold still while looking ambiguous to the fact he is being captured on film for time and all eternity. Encapsulated by PSA as a "Type 1" and in great shape overall, this is the only example of this image we have ever seen and it ranks among the best portraits of Ruth we have ever seen!
