In the first shot from the early-to-mid 1920s, a noticeably svelte Ruth enjoys a quiet pre-game moment by a clapboard stadium wall. That example measures 6-1/2" x 8-1/2", while the second shot from later in the decade spans a larger 7-3/8"  x 10" and captures Babe posing for pictures at spring training in Florida, with a gaggle of shutterbugs in classic Roaring Twenties garb. Both Type I photos feature Pacific & Atlantic copyright stamps on reverse and show the typical peripheral wear and edge chipping of period news-service photography.
