Why the Bambino cover on Vanity Fair? To herald the humorously witty article "A Most Peculiar Sport" by sports biographer and 
Poseidon Adventure author Paul Gallico. It's well worth a read and does reference Ruth in the context of Gallico's observation that baseball is the only sport where it's acceptable behavior for spectators to shout from the stands that Babe is a "bum"! Technically GD/VG with a vertical line on Ruth, but displays much nicer. The overall dimensions are nearly 9-3/4 x 12-3/4."
