News photo capturing Babe Ruth at the plate during a game. Certified as an original Type 1 photograph by PSA/DNA. A Keystone-Underwood credit stamp appears on the reverse, as does a remnant of the original paper news caption. This photo originates from the Baseball Magazine archives and bears a hologram sticker on the reverse that was placed there by Christie's auction house during its sale of the archives in 1996. Although not dated, the uniform style worn by the catcher matches that used by the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1931 and 1932. As such, this photo must have been taken at either a spring training game between the clubs, or perhaps an early season exhibition game in New York. The photo (10 x 8 inches) displays light surface wrinkles and is in Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
