One of the mot tragic stories in baseball history was the death of Babe Ruth and the circumstances involved in his treatment. Supposedly Ruth's family and doctors knew he was dying, but they chose to withhold the information from Ruth himself to keep his spirits high in the last year of his life. The offered photograph is a poignant reminder of the tragic last year of Ruth's life as the back even points out he was in good health and good spirits! Issued by Acme and stamped on the back with a nice paper caption as well.
