One of the most unusual and interesting Babe Ruth photographs ever offered for public sale. Incredible snapshot photograph shows the Babe with bat between his legs like it was his penis. A Type I personal photo that is a one-of-a-kind, he is shown by the Yankee dugout before a game posing for friend and teammate Ed Wells. First generation vintage image dates from Wells’ tenure with the Yankees, 1929-1932. In NRMT condition, the photo itself is 4.5x2.75”. The image was obtained directly from the Wells Estate several years back, and is an interesting reference to the prodigious size of Ruth’s member which remains a part of the Bambino's legend. It is interesting to note that this perfectly embodies the camaraderie of the Babe and his teammates or actually of any players in team sports. No one else would have or have access to this kind of image.
