Babe Ruth & John Montague 1937 Wire Photo from Charity Match Against Babe Zaharias


Sports icon and Yankee great Babe Ruth was known to participate in numerous golf tournaments in the decades of the 1930's and 1940's, admired by the likes of leading professionals of his day such as Byron Nelson. One could only imagine how many yards he could hit his driver, hopefully calling his shot to land in the middle of the fairway. Here is a black and white photo from 1937 of the Great Bambino walking side-by-side with John Montague, a professional golfer and minor-league baseball player, at a charity match against Babe Zaharias. George Herman Ruth traded in his New York Yankees uniform for pleated pants and a sweater this day, as captured in the photo. It measures 7" x 9," this crossover piece will be a unique addition. It is in fair to good condition, with a crease down the left side. A letter of from PGA Historian Bob Denney will accompany this lot.
