Before he "bowed out" at Yankee Stadium in June of 1948, Ruth was honored on April 27, 1947, and delivered an inspiring speech that can be heard by clicking here. Offered is an intimate, up-close 7x9 shot distributed by Acme Newspictures with the filing stamp "APR 29 1947" and the news-clipping caption, "This striking Acme photo of Babe Ruth was taken as the Sultan of Swat was overcome by emotion at Yankee Stadium while addressing the crowd." Moderate to heavy news-usage wear in the form of surface rippling and peripheral creasing.
