1931 Crystal clear and detailed photograph of three members of the New York Yankees led by Babe Ruth as they received awards from New York mayor Jimmy Walker at the ballpark. Joining Ruth is slugger Lefty O'Doul from the Brooklyn Dodgers as well as Ruth's teammates Ben Chapman and Ethan Allen. Ruth is the star here and the photo captures him with exceptional contrast and deep tones. Issued by the Associated Press and stamped on the back, the photo has most of the original paper caption as well.
