Stunning 1932 batting photograph of Babe Ruth as the Yankee superstar watches one sail into the seats and holds his follow through for photographers. A statuesque masterpiece, this is one of the clearest and most impressive batting photographs of Babe Ruth we have ever seen and the only example we know of in the hobby. The photograph was issued by the Associated Press and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, displaying exceptional artistic tones and use of light. The photograph has a crease at the top which has been slightly restored and looks great, presenting like a high grade example. Offered here for the first time ever and encapsulated by PSA (Type 1).
