It's the beginning of the end for Ruth as he embarks on his final season in pinstripes. Dated 3/13/34, the International News paper caption reads, "Left to right, Manager Joe McCarthy of the New York Yankees, Babe Ruth, the Sultan of Swat, and Lou Gehrig, the Iron Man as they appeared at the Yankee Training Camp here on the opening day of the spring training season for the Yankees. The batterymen had been working out for a full week but this was the first appearance of the Babe Ruth and company. Babe and Joe discussed the possibility of the Bambino playing over 100 games this season." Condition of the 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" photo is EX with nice image clarity and contrast. And just for the record, the 39-year-old Ruth played in 125 games and hit a not-too-shabby 22 home runs with 84 RBIs! LOA for Type I by PSA/DNA.
