1924 Vintage photograph of baseball superstar Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he addressed a national radio audience (possibly for the first time) and tells kids how he hits homers. A really bold and attractive image with a fantastic American flag motif in the background. Ruth looks young and full of life at center while flanked by Bob Meusel and agent Christy Walsh. Issued by Wide World Photos and with a full paper caption on the back, this is the only example of this cool photograph we have seen!
