Pair of vintage glass plate duplicate negatives capturing Babe Ruth doing what he did best: hitting a baseball. Each negative captures Ruth on the field prior to a game as he shows the form that made him the greatest slugger in the history of the game. One of the negatives displays a small piece of paper affixed on the reverse in the lower right corner, while the other has the number "93" etched in the lower left corner. Aside from those two minor anomalies, each negative (5x4") remains in Excellent condition. Both are accompanied by a small positive photo of the image printed on paper.
