1918 Double weight studio quality photograph of the biggest sensation in baseball, Babe Ruth of the Boston Red Sox. Taken as he was starting to cement himself as the best hitter in the game, he is captured from head to toe in what can only be described as one of his greatest images ever taken. The offered photograph has some age to it and from our analysis it appears to be a 1960's or possibly 1970's example of a photo that would otherwise break $50,000, but this nice piece will not set you back even a small fraction of that. Vintage re-strikes of Ruth remain a nice value and this one is one of the best we have offered.
