c. 1922 Dramatic action photograph of Babe Ruth from the New York Yankees as he takes a mighty hack at the ball. Taken from above the scene and slightly to Ruth's side of the action, this is a stunning horizontal piece of baseball art that is among the better images of Ruth actually at bat (not posed or during batting practice) that we have ever seen. Issued by Pacific and Atlantic with the early 1920's stamp on the back, this is a nearly perfect specimen that is being offered here for the first time ever! An investment quality image of the greatest athlete of all time.
