Large c. 1932 batting photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he takes a monster hack at the ball in uniform. Stamped on the back by Acme and in great shape, this is one of the better images of Ruth batting we have offered in a while and this is the only known example. The photo grades almost perfectly. The photo has been encapsulated by PSA (Type 3) but it is actually much clearer than many of the PSA Type 1 images we have handled over the years and it looks amazing.
