1926 Incredible photograph of New York Yankees Hall of Famer Babe Ruth as he looks a bit surly at being photographed before heading into the batting cage. Posed with his bat in hand and label turned out for the camera, this is a really tremendous image that has to rank among his best out there. This is a c. 1950's re-strike which appears to be off the original negative but we can not find another example to compare the clarity to.
