1923 was not only one of the single most important seasons in Yankees history, it was also a banner year for 28 year old Babe Ruth who batted .393 (a Yankees record) with 41 home runs and 131 RBI's. Here, Ruth poses for a Newspaper Enterprises Association (NEA) photographer in this 6" x 7" photo. Front of photo appears to be clean and free of obtrusive blemishes. Verso includes both NEA's news photo service stamping as well an October 22, 1923 date stamp from only eight days after the Yankees claimed their very first World Series title on October 15. Encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
