Beautiful and fun 1922 photograph of Babe Ruth on his Boston farm and playing with his daughter that he had just met for the first time only days earlier. A vintage image in pretty nice shape with some crazing from age and a bit of editorial marks from publication. This is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen and it is a really cool and fun pose! Stamped on the back by Pacific and Atlantic, this is the only example of this image we have ever seen.
