Important 1927 photograph of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, taken just weeks after the end of the World Series, as the two superstars pose with Father Flanagan of "Boys Town" in Nebraska. While a few other examples of this photograph exist, this is the best, stamped on the back by the actual Omaha photographer and with full white borders. As good as any 1927 photograph of Ruth and Gehrig in uniform with the Yankees, this is an undervalued and important piece of baseball history, especially in connection with Ruth's upbringing and what he must have felt being back in a home for boys! The image has a little wear at the corners but overall it presents beautifully!
