From the Babe

Satin-finish 20 x 16 photo of a young Bush in his Yale baseball uniform being honored by Babe Ruth prior to a game, signed in black felt tip by Bush. Standing behind Bush are, left to right, Director of Athletics Robert J. H. Kiphuth, University Librarian James T. Babb, and New Haven Mayor William C. Celentano. In 1948, during the home game against Princeton University, Bush got a chance to meet one of his baseball heroes, Babe Ruth. In one of his last public appearances before his death that year, Babe Ruth presented Bush, then the team captain, with the manuscript of his autobiography, which he was donating to Yale. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a STAT certificate of authenticity and R&R COA.
