Incredible 1927 posed photograph at the ballpark of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig as they pose in their iconic "Bustin' Babes" and "Larrupin' Lous" uniforms. One of the most famous shots of the dup ever taken, this is a completely vintage 1927 example made on double weight paper, but the autographs were embedded into the image for fans so that the dup would not have to sign so many photos day after day. It has been speculated these were also sold on the tour which would make them baseball cards! Despite a crease and some pinholes, the image presents really well and this is a tremendous value considering what original photographs and baseball cards of these guys are selling for now.
