Rare 1948 photograph of Babe Ruth as he attended the premier of the movie made about his life, "The Babe Ruth Story" in a New York theatre. While he seemed full of life, out on the town with his wife, he would be dead in three weeks making this his last public appearance of all time and one of his last photos ever taken! Stamped on the back by the International News and with a full paper caption as well, this is encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1 as well.
