1922 Rare photograph of the wild Babe Ruth, recently tamed by becoming a father and spending time on his Massachusetts farm with his 14 month old daughter. Issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, this is still from early in Ruth's career and an important time in his life! This is a touching piece of Ruth memorabilia and the only example of this photograph we have ever seen. The photo has an exceptional image portion with some wear and chipping at the edges being the only real flaw.
