Large 1925 photograph of baseball star Babe Ruth as he was still relegated to the hospital as part of his "Bellyache Heard Round the World" scandal that kept him out of the start of the 1925 baseball season. He was up and on his feet for the first time in a month and took a moment to lift the spirits of another small boy, a kid who broke his arm playing baseball! A large and clear image in great shape that we have never seen before, issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
