1922 Visually stunning batting photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he watches one sail into the seats and follows the flight of the ball, holding his follow through all the while. Issued by Wide World Photos and with the date present on the back, this is crystal clear and ranks among his best batting images we have handled. Despite being trimmed a bit for editorial use at a newspaper, the entire figure of Ruth is captured from head to toe making it quite the visual masterpiece of sports photography. Photo has a rip that appears like a crease that has been reinforced with tape on the back and some light pinholes from newspaper use, but it has the appearance of a high grade example which is much better than the technical grade. Quite possibly the finest Ruth you can find for the money in the entire hobby.
