1931 Portrait photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees, posed at the ballpark in full uniform, but with a twist. Ruth was playing in an exhibition game against the House of David and sported a beard to poke a bit of fun at the opponents. A famous image and event, this is the only image of Ruth in uniform from this moment that we have ever seen. Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, this grades nicely with two pinholes being the only flaws.
