Vintage news photo picturing Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees posing on field with Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker of the Philadelphia Athletics. This photo can only date from 1928 because that was the only year that Cobb and Speaker played together on the Athletics. The year also marked both Cobb's and Speaker's final season in baseball. This is an outstanding photo capturing four of the greatest players in baseball history. The photo (9.5 x 5.5 inches) displays a corner chip in the lower right, as well as a few minor creases along the border areas. There is also moderate editorial marks and shading to the images. In apparent Very Good to Excellent condition. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 18 x 14 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
