1920 Portrait photo of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees. One of his most iconic images ever taken which was used for baseball cards, candy bar wrappers, advertisements, magazine covers and reproduced in publications thousands of times. A nice condition example and with bold tones, this is one of only a handful of this photograph we have ever seen in any form and while this is a restrike from about 1960 but still have roughly 60 years of age to it! The photo looks great and appears to be in high grade but under close examination it has a small area of paper loss on the right border area (shoulder) which blends in with his white uniform and does not really detract from the overall appearance.
