Not a shot we've seen before, this instant classic features great smiles, dapper street clothes and a young fan—making it one of the more endearing scenes of these two oft-at-odds teammates where they seem genuinely happy together. And why not? After World Series glory in that magical '27 season, they were now making barnstorming history as captains of the Bustin' Babes and Larrupin' Lous! "RUTH AND GEHRIG ARRIVE AT SAN FRANCISCO," reads the original paper caption, significant dated 10-21-27 and adhered to the reverse of the 8-3/4 x 8" period frame. "Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, National Kings of Swat, arrived at San Francisco today, Oct. 21 for a series of exhibition games at San Francisco. Photo shows Babe Ruth shaking hands with one of his many boy admirers at San Francisco. Lou Gehrig is shown on the right." The photo's 7-3/4 x 6" visible area is apparent EX-MT.
