    Great Baseball Photos (George H. Ruth's collection)

    One of our newer forumers offered to share some photos, but didn't have enough posts to start a new one. Babe, this thread's for you -- post away.

    Thank you so much, trust me you won't be disapointed. Now just to warn you guys, there's going to be a lot of different players in this thread. It won't be organized like the way I want to, but trust me you'll enjoy them.

    So here we go!

    I've already told you some of this stuff, but I really want to hear the story behind Cobb and Mantle (since I didn't even realize they'd ever met).

    I'm also fascinated by the picture of Satchel in a Yankee uniform (Alexander set). Hadn't realized he ever wore one -- from what you told me, it has to be the Black Yankees, but I didn't know they had identical uniforms.

    Have to tell me the story behind the Cobb and Mathewson photo, as well. They never faced each other, to my knowledge, so I'd like to know the circumstances of this meeting.

    And the one of the young Eddie Collins is just great.

    Here's a little info behind the questions you've asked, as soon as I get more time I'll go into more details.

    Ty Cobb visits Christy Mathewson, New York, NL during 1911 World Series.

    Also I dont have much information on the Satchal Paige picture with Grover, but as soon as I do, i'll let you know.

    I'm sure there's a lot of Babe Ruth fans here, so I guess its time for me to show off the Babe Ruth photos.

    Wow, I do believe that's William Bendix a graying Babe is teaching how to hit in that photo!

    Lots more I want to say, and thanks for the Gehrig photos -- a couple in there I definitely hadn't seen before!

    Time to post some photo's of Rube Waddell. Now I don't know if anyone knows the story behind Rube, but it was very hard to take pictures of him because he was crazy and he didn't like when people took pictures of him at some point of his career. So hopefully you guys enjoy these.

    I'm sure a lot of people here want to see some Mickey Mantle photos so that's what I am going to be posting next. Hopefully you enjoy these.

    Hey Babe ... are pictures (about) 20 & 21 the sprinkler-head ones?

    Very nice collection you have.

    Hey there, George H. Ruth ... I'm wondering if you have any of Babe pitching for the Yankees?

    Picture 20-21 is when Joe DiMaggio makes the catch and Mickey Mantle injures his knee in the 1951 World Series.

    I'm sure I can round some Babe Ruth pitching for the Yankees for you, and I see that your a Ted Williams fan Dave. I'll be adding some pictures of him just for you, later on.

    Here's Ted Williams for my new found friend Dave. Hopefully he enjoys them, same goes for everyone else, even though your Yankee fans.



























    That's all I have for now, I'll be adding some more later on.

    I'll tell you, Babe, you're one heck of a nice friend to have here at NYYFans. Love the Ted Williams photo's ... and all the others pictures I've seen in this thread are absolutely terrific for sure. Glad Tara started this thread for you. NYYFans is lucky you've found you way here! Keep the collection coming.
