Despite batting .373 and leading the league (yet again) with 46 home home runs in 1931, Babe Ruth tinkered with his batting stance during spring training 1932. This 6" x 8" photo depicts Ruth demonstrating his changes for the press in St. Petersburg, FL. Verso includes paper caption detailing The Babe's adjustments and includes Acme Newspictures photo service stamping along with a March 14, 1932 date stamp. Some corner wear is present and a small bit of editorial masking material has been added to Ruth's right arm in an effort to separate it from his body when published. A wonderful look at the man's powerful batting grip later in his career. Encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
