Description

If you're in the market for a 1916 original team photo with Ruth, you'll be hard-pressed to find one for under $5,000. And the stratosphere for 1916 team advertising displays with Ruth is up at $15,000-plus these days. Now allow us to introduce a perhaps one-of-a-kind example of the latter. We've never seen it before, and we doubt you have either! Boldly printed in black-and-white with bright orange accents, the oversized 14x19 calendar features that iconic team shot of the young, cherub-faced Babe smiling in between fellow hurler Ernie Shore and the pint-sized mascot. They're joined by Jones, Wagner, Lewis, Gainer, Gregg, Agnew, Barry, Henriksen, Wyckoff, Walsh, Hooper, Foster, Thomas, Carrigan, Walker, Janvrin, Cady, Scott, Gardner, Hoblitzell, Pennock, Mays, Shorten, Leonard and McNally. FR condition with heavy wear throughout and then some restoration in the form of in-painting and sealed tears (away from the all-important team image area). Adhered to a foamcore backing within the 19x25 frame.
