Vintage photograph capturing Babe Ruth as a member of the Boston Red Sox. The bust-length image pictures Ruth posing on the field as he stares directly into the camera. As noted by PSA, this image of Ruth dates to 1916, which was his second full season with Boston. Three Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse, along with several handwritten editorial notations. The photo (6x7.5"), which is slightly trimmed to its current dimensions, remains in Excellent to Mint condition. As a point of reference, this photo originally appeared as Lot 1049 in Leland's 2022 Spring Classic Auction, where it realized $16,506. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type II Authentic.
