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 clean and clear issued by the International News and with a few corner creases at the top being the only flaws.
