Offered is a stunning and important 5" x 7.5" Type I photo of Babe Ruth preparing for his comeback after the 1921 late season suspension levied by the commissioner. Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis didn’t want any World Series team partaking in such an event because he didn’t want the real Babe Ruth 1922 photochampionship series replicated in any way. While that may seem silly today, Landis was quite serious, which Ruth discovered when he was suspended until May 20 and fined $3,362, the amount of his 1921 World Series check. Teammate Bob Meusel was also suspended. Ruth made more on the tour than in the World Series, but the suspension put the Yankees in a bind to start a new season. Once he got back in the lineup, Ruth bounced back to hit 35 homers but for the second straight year, the Yankees were beaten by the Giants in the World Series. With a renewed commitment, he hit .393 during the regular season and dominated the 1923 World Series, giving the Yankees their first World Series championship. LOA PSA/DNA and Henry Yee.
