Displayed is an original Wide World Photos circa 1930s Type I 7x9" photograph of the Babe after a workout. The thick long sleeve shirt, heavy blanket and towel wrapped around his head is a combo that can be seen in similar images online, in which captions describe Babe as finishing a workout at a gym in NYC. On back, a small newspaper cut photo of Ruth has been attached from when this image was used in a publication. This small, newspaper cut photo on the back of the offered photo, is stamp dated as "APR 18 1934". Newsprint reads, "JACK DEMPSEY and BABE RUTH" on the attached newspaper photo. The offered photo has been encapsulated and PSA certified as Type I AUTHENTIC. The photo is in nice condition, and the photo just exudes charisma, showing Ruth with a relaxed, cherubic smile.
