c. 1920 Vintage photograph of Babe Ruth as he takes a mighty hack at a ball from about his first year with the New York Yankees. A famous image, this is the only vintage example we have ever seen before. There are several stamps on the back from Underwood and Underwood with the earliest dating this to about 1920! From the Underwood archives and offered here for the first time ever, the photo has a crease on the upper right but otherwise it presents beautifully.
