Candid photo capturing Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig standing together in front of the dugout at Yankee Stadium, circa 1930. Both players are pictured wearing their Yankee jackets, with Gehrig flashing a broad smile at the camera. A "Sy Seidman" credit stamp appears on the reverse, as does a 1992 Culver Pictures Inc., deaccessioned stamp. The vintage handwritten pencil notations on the reverse read "Babe Ruth + Lou Gehrig," and "Photo made by Sy Seidman." The photo (7 x 5 inches) displays a number of light creases throughout, mainly in the white border areas and a roughly trimmed bottom border. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
