Interesting real photo postcard featuring Babe Ruth - in beach attire - seemingly emerging from a changing room alongside an attractive young woman.  Though our research has been unable to unequivocally discern the second subject of the postcard, in our history we have offered several postcards with unidentified subjects, and quite quickly, a helpful customer will provide us with information to help improve our description.  It's one of our favorite parts of running the auction, actually, because we have such knowledgeable customers and it is a privilege to learn from them.

Regardless, the postcard has been graded FAIR 1.5 by SGC, due largely to handwriting on the reverse, as well as some light staining and wear to the edges and corners.  Still, an interesting real photo postcard of Babe Ruth, out of uniform and enjoying some leisure time.
