Original Type I photo from the 1927 film "Babe Comes Home," starring Babe Ruth. The publicity photo captures a scene from the film in which Babe Ruth slides into home plate during a game. "Babe Comes Home" was released in May, 1927, and was Ruth's second feature film. The film itself has been lost, with no copies known. Today, all that remains are a few rare posters, heralds, and movie stills such as this. Three Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse, along with a "Jul 22 1927" date stamp, and a few handwritten notations. The photo (10x8") displays tiny chips in three of the corners and a few light creases. In Very Good condition. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type I Authentic.
