    Description

    Play Ball With Babe Ruth (Universal, 1932). Photos (6) (8" X 10") and Magazine (Multiple Pages).
    In this special lot is included six wonderful, vintage, gelatin silver photographs from the short subject series made by baseball's great Babe Ruth. This series was produced by Universal Studios in the early 1930s and can be watched in their entirety on Youtube.com What is even more special and interesting about this lot is that all of the photos came from the collection of Christy Walsh Sr., Ruth's manager from 1921 to 1935! All the photos are accompanied by a photocopy of a letter from Walsh's daughter-in-law attesting to their authenticity and details of each photo. Each photo has a blue press snipe attached to the verso describing the image. Also included in the lot is a copy of the magazine Reel Journal from June of 1927 with an advertisement for Ruth's First National Film, The Babe Comes Home. Fine+.
