Popular Florida resort town St. Petersburg was the setting for this dynamic news service photo of Babe Ruth. This captivating Type I 8x10 photo sees the Babe following through on one of his mighty cuts, against the Boston Braves during a Spring Training exhibition game at the elegant beach locale. Standing out in sharp contrast to a soft focus crowd scene in the background, Ruth has kicked up a cloud of dust in his failed effort to connect. Moderate age-appropriate wear leads to a (VG) rating for this clean and glossy octogenarian image, which is noted on the reverse as "March 16 Game" in an attached Associated Press blurb dated "3/19/32". The back of the photo also bears a partially obscured AP credit stamp and a few blue pencil editorial markings, that provide authentic provenance.
