1926 Beautiful and touching image of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees, posing with his wife and daughter before the start of the first game of the World Series. The image is a powerful piece of photography that captures the greatest athlete of all time, embracing his daughter with love while his somewhat estranged wife looks uncomfortable at the situation. Issued by Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back, the photo has a set of embossed "File Copy" stamps which were typical of Underwood images from their archive and a full paper caption.
