The article's headline and caption read “Ready for the Armchair and the Slippers? Babe Ruth, whose old props have been keeping him out of the game from time to ttime this year and who told a Post-Dispatch reporter recently that he would not seek another contract next year if he felt that he would be merely a pinch hitter, or part-time player.” Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA. The photo measures 7 ½ x 9 ½ inches and presents with newsroom editorial markings, some corner and edge wear and it's orignal published clipping still attached. Excellent to Mint condition.
