It's Always The Time To Consign at Hoody's Collectibles

Just send us a message for our low consignment rates and streamlined process.

Reminder, we are not professional graders so please examine scans carefully. What you see is what you get. Feel free to reach out with any questions.

Rarely scene photograph snapped from this vantage point, offering the incredible opportunity to stare down the most fearsome slugger in the game from the perch of a pitcher's mound. Furthering the appeal is the scene behind the Babe, with dozens of fans peering onto the action from behind a shield of chicken wire at the Dunsmuir, California ballpark where this photo was snapped on October 22, 1924.

Unknown why Ruth is wearing this unusual variation upon the Yankees wardrobe, as he otherwise wore nothing more than a number upon his pinstripes, but it may have had something to do with the rules for barnstorming put in place after Commissioner Landis suspended Ruth for his 1921 tour. By this time, Landis had softened his stance to allow limited barnstorming for World Series participants, and this particular tour was shared with 1924 World Series champion Walter Johnson.

The Big Train is not pictured in this image, and it's possible that he could be standing beside the photographer here, who may very well have been Christy Walsh himself, from whose estate this photo derives. That's Walsh's handwriting on the back of this 6.25x8.25" image, reading, "Babe Ruth and Grandstand at Dunsmuir Cal, Population 5000, Grandstand capacity about 500, Attendance at Babe Ruth game = 3500 on 12 hours advertising." Sepia image exhibits tack holes at two corners and minor edge wear, but is otherwise free of any staining, tearing or creasing. Letter of provenance from family of Christy Walsh. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
