1921 Sweeping action photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he took a mighty hack at the ball during batting practice from early in his tenure with the team. Photographers are seen taking his picture from the opposite side which is a cool touch and despite this photo being a restrike from c. 1960 (two-digit zip code on the back stamp) it presents well and is much closer to the original than todays date!
