The Bambino, a ring king? Not with that sloppy stance. A fantastic photo of the Babe trading blows with middle-weight contender Dick Hoppe on the field in LA. Inscribed in bold 8/10 black ink, “To Dick Hoppe, From Babe Ruth”. “File Babe Ruth, Sparring with Dick Hoppe at Los Angeles January 1927” in pencil on back. Corners as sharp as the overall contrast. Light creasing and pinholes do nothing to detract from the overall appeal of this exceptional photo.
