1934 Incredible field-level action photograph of Babe Ruth putting on a hitting exhibition before a game at Yankee Stadium. Taken near the end of his career but still blasting balls out of the ballpark, this is a sweeping image and taken from field level, this is crystal clear and exceptionally clean. While not stamped on the back, the photo carries a vintage handwritten identification and then later a newspaper archive added a ink notation to return the photo their address in New York. One of the finest images of Ruth we have ever handled and it captures him at the pinnacle of his swing while he watches the ball sail into the seats. The quality and clarity of this image make it among the top 1% of all Ruth photos in the hobby!
