The offered original 10x8 sepia-toned photograph shows Babe Ruth looking on as a military officer fires a rifle. A publicity shot, to be sure, this image was likely captured at Ruth's Sudbury, Massachusetts farm. On the reverse, THE CHRISTY WALSH SYNDICATE is stamped with one of the super agent's many addresses used during his career. An INTERNATIONAL NEWSREEL stamping, however, narrows the date to 1922-1928. While the image remains decidedly crisp, the photo shows (VG) quality with a few creases along the borders and some small chips and tears in the upper and lower right corners. Accompanying is an LOA from Walsh's daughter-in-law.
