Both are Acme Newspictures shots measuring 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" and encapsulated as Type III by PSA.


The first is from that most desirable and sought-after year of 1927, with a paper caption reading, "NOW, NOW BABE. THIS BEATS YOUR RECORD. / Babe Ruth, the demon home run slugger of the New York Yankees, meets Babe Ruth, a champion in another class, during his stop at Omaha, Nebr., in the baseball barnstorming tour of the country. The feminine Babe Ruth holds the world's record indisputably after laying her 170th consecutive egg. Lou Gehrig, Yankee first baseman and runner up to Ruth in home run hitting, chuckles over the egg." Consistent surface rippling around the periphery and a small area of adhesive residue at bottom center.


The second is from 1929, with a paper caption reading, "NEW YORK YANKEES START THEIR SPRING TRAINING - Photo shows Lou Gehrig, star 1st baseman and home run slugger batting out a few as the New York Yanks start their spring training at St. Petersburg, Florida, preparing for the coming season." Minor peripheral wear includes a faint horizontal crease above Gehrig's head.
