Appearing thin and (relatively) trim prior to his twentieth major league campaign, Babe Ruth took time to greet an admirer for this 1933 real photo postcard. With ball and pen in hand, “The Bambino” appears ready to create a timeless souvenir on the crisp black-and-white 3 x 5-1/2” ephemeron. Despite peripheral crazing, the crystal clear image of the home run champ is crease-free. Beneath the picture the original owner etched “Charles and Babe-Florida 1933”. The reverse is postmarked 3/14/33 from Saint Petersburg, Florida, the Spring Training home of the Bronx Bombers. A brief notation from the original owner is also placed on the reverse. Neat playing era artifact from the mighty Ruth!
