1920's Babe Ruth Photo Premium of unknown issue. It appears like most photos from the mid to late 1920's with a stamped numeral on the back, measuring 2 3/8" x 4 11/16". It has Babe Ruth's autographed etched into the image and below that some other etching, which i believe is probably the photographer(it appears reversed on the photo). There is also a similar Lou Gehrig, so these might have been mass produced from the negative for some sort of use as a premium or give-away. Pin-holed and creased, with some tape reinforcing on the back, as seen.

Only a few of Ruth and Gehrig known to exist, but definitely enough to establish that they were produced for a reason and not just a one-off photo. One for the Ruth collector that tries to get one of everything.
