Description

Two of the most popular baseball stars ever to lace up their spikes, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, are featured on these four original wire photographs. The first photo is a 7x9 image of 1936 World Series opponents Gehrig and Hubbell writing an article for the newspaper (EX-MT). The next three images feature Babe Ruth including a 7x9 wire photo of Ruth signing his 1935 contract with the Boston Braves (NM), an 8x10 wire photo of Babe Ruth at the opening game of the 1936 World Series with his wife and daughter (NM) and an 8x12 wire photo of Ruth on a Bermuda golf course in 1937 (VG-EX, small tear on right side). All of the photographs have their original information tags, although the two from the 1936 World Series are detached from the images.
