    1928 Banquet for Sports Champions:
    Top: Babe Ruth (baseball), Gene Tunney (boxing), Johnny Weissmuller (swimming, played Tarzan in movies), Bill Cook (hockey)

    Bottom: Bill Tilden (tennis), Bobby Jones (golf), Fred Spencer/Charlie Winters (6 Day bicycle race).
    A shame Jack Dempsey for boxing was not included in this wonderful photo. Or Jose Capablanca for chess.

    June 23, 1925 - vs. Washington Senators. Babe Ruth sliding into third base.

    BSmile posted this on the Babe Ruth thread, and I find myself shameless in stealing it here. It's that good.

    Thanx Bill!
    Yeah, there aren't many great action shots of the Babe (besides batting of course).

    Thanking me? Oh, NO! I and everyone else ARE THANKING YOU!

    How you find these priceless photos is beyond me. I've seen many of your photos before, but always in small size, and only average condition.

    You seem to find the original photos, and in LARGE size. This Ruth shot is so absolutely gorgeous. We can see his expression in exquisite detail. Whenever I try to blow something up, it comes out lousy. Distorts all the original beauty. That is why so many of my stuff is so small. I refuse to compromise clarity for size.

    But YOU! You never seem to compromise! How in hell can you get away with such size. It seems that the larger you blow it up, the most gorgeous and amazing it gets! I'm furious with envy!!! Just isn't fair.

    March 2, 1927: Signing his 1927 contract, with Jake Ruppert. Ed Barrow, standing.
    How unusual that Babe wrote with his right hand and pitched with his left.----------Signing his 1932 contract, for $75,000. with Jake Ruppert, with wife Claire. He was angry about the $5K paycut.
