    Babe surrounded by his young, adoring fans.


    Babe, glaring at the enemy pitcher as he nears his battle station! Must have been a study in intimidation.
    He looked like a hitter, he walked like a hitter, he HIT LIKE A HITTER!!!


    In a contemplative mood.


    April 27, 1947: Babe Ruth Day at Yankee Stadium. Farewell to Baseball Address Speech: 58,339 fans turned out at Yankee Stadium.
    Nearing the end of the road. Cardinal Spellman and Happy Chandler in the background.


    The stance that said it all. Preparing to launch.


    1915, with his Red Sox team mates.


    Christy Walsh/Babe, inspecting their barn-storming touring uniforms.

    This is one of BSmiles' rare finds. And as usual, when my resistance is low, I just can't help helping myself. With a minor tweak.

    BSmile posted this on Rare Babe Ruth, and there was absolutely no way I could resist tweaking it. Babe is autographing for kid fans with wife Claire next to him. Opening Day, April 20, 1937, Yankee Stadium.

    Babe Ruth, 1920.
    (BSmile contributed this one to Rare Babe Ruths, and it was too great not to raid [steal]. He enhanced it and I selectively tinted it with sepia.

    SultanOfWhat found this from the Babe Ruth thread. Too good to not raid (steal). I'm quite shameless in my photos thievery, aren't I? :blush:
