Vintage c. 1925 photograph of Babe Ruth from the Yankees as he was greeted by the mayor of St. Petersburg and taken about the time the Yankees started their first spring training at the famous site (1925 was the first year). The quality of the photograph is outstanding and the image is clean and bold. From the archives of Underwood and Underwood, the photo is stamped on the back with a typed paper caption as well. There is a small corner chip and a few light creases at the bottom, otherwise the photo presents really well. Offered here for the first time ever.
