The first of these (2) wire photos is a 6 x 8” image dated April 28,1930 of Ruth shaking hands and giving a ball and bat to F. Trubee Davison, the acting Secretary of War, for the troops. The photo is in EX condition with no creasing and only some very minor age discoloration which does not interfere with the central image. The other photograph is a 6.5 x 8.5” and is dated January 1, 1934 and captures Ruth and Jacob Ruppert in Ruppert’s office, Ruth signing his contract for the 1934 season. This image is in EX condition with some minor wrinkling at the edges but the tonal qualities and contrast are great.
