Rare 1925 photograph of Babe Ruth in the off-season as he hopes to trim down and train for a comeback season after it appeared his career was winding down. Issued by the Keystone View Company and stamped on the back, this is one of the cooler images of Ruth we have ever handled off the diamond. Despite some pinholes, a little wear on his shirt area, and a crease from publication, the image presents pretty well and appears better than the technical grade.
