Original c. 1925 photograph of the most famous man in the world, Babe Ruth, as he patiently poses in full uniform while seven or eight beautiful young ladies stop to take his picture all at once. Ruth is clearly not the happiest at having to do this, but ever the gracious celebrity, he dutifully executes his job as a superstar for his fans and patiently waits while they set their focus on their cameras to capture the larger than life baseball God! Ruth is captured from head to toe in uniform and the clarity is exceptional. The back of the photograph bears a stamp from the Pacific and Atlantic company and it is their typical mid-1920's company stamp which dates this to between 1925-1927. One of the better images of Ruth interacting with his fans that we have seen and the only example we have handled in the hobby!
