Babe Ruth
RARE Original Photo - The Final Game
Historic Photo

 

An Outstanding ORIGINAL Wire Photo issued by Acme News pictures on September 30, 1934, the final game of the season and Babe Ruth's LAST game as a member of the New York YankeesWith original Press Release snipe on back along with date stamp of that historic day.    * See enlargeable images above and below

Ruth was honored at Griffith Stadium earlier that day with gifts he announced his retirement from baseball. He retired and was convinced to return to the game by Boston Braves owner Judge Fuchs later in December.

The Original Press Stamp, Date and Caption is on the reverse of this Vintage photo measuring 6" x 8". When Ruth decided to exit the game and leave the Yankees, it was ugly. Ruth with his diminishing skills was a fraction of the man he was in his prime. After years of lobbying for the managerial position with the Yankees and unsuccessfully getting through to the deaf ears of owner Jacob Ruppert, Ruth had enough.

This is an Outstanding photo of a dejected Ruth with his head down making his exit outside the ballpark. A kid is shown trying to chase down the Babe but Ruth (who usually accommodates everyone) was in a foul mood and had no time to pen the lad's baseball.

The cop shown is gesturing with his hands to the kid with a "not-today-son" motion. There is a man in the left foreground holding a long object wrapped up (possibly Ruth's final bat as a memento, but that is just an educated guest).

The caption folds out neatly from the bottom as seen in the second image below making this one ideal for framing with the story line showing. Simply a tremendous image !
