Superlative one-of-a-kind, from the camera glass negative of the 1921 New York Yankees. Crystal clear team picture taken at the Polo Grounds measures 8x10" and includes Ruth, Baker and Huggins, with entire team clad in matching Yankees sweaters. The 1921 season was among Ruth's best statistically, in a year that was also notable for the AL pennant-winning Yanks appearing in their first ever World Series - falling to the Giants in the last ever best-of-9 series, all played at the Polo Grounds, two years before the opening of the original Yankee Stadium.
