If you went to a baseball game in Baltimore in 1914, you would have seen the genesis of greatness and had no idea. A young man named Babe Ruth, a pitcher, was performing well but nobody could have dreamed what was to come in the future! His catcher was a slightly older, but still young player named Wickey McAvoy and this image captures him at the ballpark with another man, posing in front of the grand stands. Taken in 1914, this is a rare ancillary collectible to the birth of the Babe Ruth legend in America. A unique new discovery, pulled directly from McAvoy's scrapbook and in great shape, offered here for the first time ever. It is crazy to think that Babe Ruth was on this field, probably at this moment!
