Babe Ruth World Series Wire Photo

Babe Ruth World Series Wire Photo

Stirring 6.5 x 8.5” wire service photo of the Babe smacking one against the Cardinals in the 1926 World Series, his bat following through over his right shoulder and his head tilted to the right watching the ball in flight. Behind him, Card catcher Bob O’Farrell and the home plate ump also follow the ball, as do the players in the visiting dugout and well-dressed fans behind the dugout. On verso is a slew of stampings by Underwood & Underwood Photos, pencil markings and an affixed caption ID’ing the shot as being from Oct. 9, 1926 and the 6th inning of Game 6. Evidently the ball Ruth hit went foul, as history records he walked on that at-bat in the Cards’ 10-2 win behind Grover Cleveland Alexander, who’d save Game 7 even though in a drunken stupor. (Ruth made the last out of the Series getting thrown out trying to steal second base.) Photo is G w/some warping and corner fray, and a wonderful historical freeze-frame.
