Starting Bid: $25.00

Time Left: Please Refresh

1923 Bold portrait photograph of Babe Ruth of the New York Yankees in uniform and posing at the ballpark during the first ever Yankees championship season! Taken during spring training before the season, the photo was issued by the Keystone View Company and has a full paper caption on the back that talks about how a young woman was claiming Ruth was the father of her child! This is possibly the first time Ruth was implicated in a sex scandal and you can almost see the worried look on his face. The photo has a slight crease on the left side and pinholes from editorial use, but otherwise it looks great! Encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1 and comes with a full LOA as well.
