(LOT 183)
Original 1927 Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig 7" x 9-1/2" Barnstorming Photograph

This unique image of Ruth & Gehrig at Yankee Stadium in 1927 is 7" x 9-1/2" in size and matted nicely in an 11" x 11" cardboard frame. The image finds Gehrig and Ruth framing Christy Walsh at center, with the rest of Babe's team on the left and right side of the Bambino. A typed caption below announces that the image was shot just after the close of the 1927 World Series. Minor wear to the mount is evident, from an otherwise NM-MT rating for the photo itself. Rare image from 1927!
