1947 Photograph of baseball superstar Babe Ruth as he met with his namesake and fellow athletic star Babe Didrikson. The Yankee superstar is giving her a pointer on how to properly hold a ball to throw a curveball, and the image is a touching piece of baseball history that was issued the year before Ruth would pass away. One of the few images of the "Two Babes" together, this is stamped on the back by the International News and with a large paper caption as well. The condition and quality are both outstanding.
