1942 New York Yankees – Babe Ruth Original Wire News Photo “The Babe’s Back In Town” For the War Effort

It’s hard to imagine back in the 1940s that the U.S. was in the midst of promoting the war effort. No one better to handle the duty was the sports icon of New York – and the world, for that matter, Babe Ruth. This classic news photo is titled, “THE BABE’S BACK IN TOWN” (paper caption / ACME news stamping on reverse). It is dated 8/21/42. Babe Ruth was back in New York for a promotional at bat against Walter Johnson of the Washington Senators in between games of a double header. He was on his way to get some practice at bats in before stopping to sign autographs for some kids. Great classic photo of an icon!
