Description

The presented Babe Ruth photograph was taken during an advertising promotion that the Bambino did in 1930 for Equitable Life Insurance. The sharp 8x10 black and white image shows the Babe standing in front of a microphone in a suit. The photograph is in excellent condition with a light wrinkle along the upper portion but with no tears or major flaws. The image came from the collection of Christy Walsh who was Ruth’s personal business manager from 1921-1941. This original Type I photo comes with a letter from Walsh’s daughter-in-law.
