Early 1920s original glass plate negative captures the immortal Babe Ruth in his prime, in Yankee pinstripes. This negative is one-of-a-kind, from the camera; just like a Type I photo but rarer as there is only one original negative for each shot from the camera. In this 5x7" plate, the Bambino is shown with hands on hips, and ready for action. Yet another spectacular find from the Brown Brothers collection.
