1927 Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig Snapshot Photo

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $720

Rare, original, snapshot photo capturing Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig posing together on the field. The vintage pencil notation on the reverse reads "Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig/at Shibe Park/1927." Candid snapshot photos of either Ruth or Gehrig are extremely scarce. The fact that this example pictures them both, in 1927 no less, makes it especially unusual and desirable. The photo (3.25 x 3.25 inches) displays four small areas of paper residue on the reverse from its having once been mounted in an album; otherwise it remains in Excellent condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $720
