Default Ruth Type-1 from 1923

Did a forum member purchase this Ruth Photo from his first HR in 1923?

Everything about that piece looks wrong, from the player who is supposedly Ruth to the re-attached more modern-looking typewritten piece re-attached to it at a later date.

I believe it just re-sold through Heritage last month in their Platinum Night sale.

Iím confident itís good. I have no doubt that itís him crossing home plate (with Batboy Eddie Bennett greeting him). Comparing the background from the pre-game opening day photos with this one...looks very consistent. Iíve been interested in this photo, as Iíve always been a fan of the 40K Bat.

Yeah, it's definitely Ruth. I've had this screenshot of the newspaper clipping for a while, and was always hoping that the photo would turn up somewhere.



The one offered in Heritage is close - maybe a second before the one in the paper - but it's clearly the same scene.

Legit I assumed but man that's the skinniest Ruth I've ever seen. I kept looking at it wondering if it was him. These photos confirm it is.

Yeah, his first few years with the Yankees - especially in '20 and '21 - the man was pretty damn svelte.

Good to hear. In this hobby I always assume the worst, and naturally I miss out on some good stuff as a result. That Cobb/Ruth golf tag is another example I was surprised to hear was legit. It's great that we have plenty of people here who can simply say "it's good" and you know it is.
