The immortal “Babe” Ruth looms larger than life in this 1926 original oversized photo. Measuring approximately 11x8 this lighthearted photo rates a solid (GD) designation with deference to slightly irregular trimming of the edges. Ruth is shown in street attire receiving a large key in front of a Christmas tree. Reverse side notations include the date stamp “DEC 25 1926” and a handwritten note which reads as “Babe Ruth receiving key to city (from?) Mayor’s Christmas tree”. Though this antique photo shows moderate overall wear, it remains appealing with sharp details and desirable gloss.
