Default Interesting observation on a 1922 Babe Ruth G.G. Bain or is it a Conlon?

As seen here.. we have the very popular 1922 Babe Ruth Bain photo in its conventional 5" x 7" size. BUT we also have this Charles Conlon image that is exactly the same. It's trimmed down from it's possible size of 6.5" x 8.5" which is much bigger than the Bain and there's more image to be seen. The Bain photo is much more grainer. Is the Bain photo a Type 3? As seen, you can clearly see the the Conlon photo is much sharper without any negative imperfections. Both are certified "Type 1" photos. Curious if anyone has any input on this.

All the best!

Looks like a Conlon copied by Bain. Bain should be a type 3.

It appears that way.. if he used this photo from Conlon my questioned would be, did he use other images from other sources? His images are usually grainy and not the best quality in my opinion.

Thanks for your input mark.
