    These are terrific pictures! I especially enjoyed the ones of the Babe with William Bendix and Gary Cooper.

    Also, those Mantle pictures brought back alot of great memories of Mickey swinging from the heals for homers. Keep them coming!

    Dave, I was able to find two pictures of Babe Pitching, as you probably know, Babe didn't pitch much in a Yankee uniform, so the pictures are real hard to find.

    Babe Pitching against the Red Sox, Oct 1, 1933

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

    Holy cow, those pictures of Babe pitching are AWESOME! I've never seen that before. Look where his arm comes in the first one -- it's like twisted, and looks so unnatural. I wonder if somewhere an old newsreel exists with any footage of his delivery; I'd be very interested to know what he did.

    And yeah, I was very interested to see those Mantle-tripping-on-the-drain photos, as well. Other famous moments I didn't know were preserved in photo. They're far shots, but you can tell he's in agony, and it's cool to see the actual angle and setup of the play.

    Glad you and Dave finally found each other. I knew you'd be a hit.

    Oops ... I think I said it was a sprinkler head when commenting on the Babe's photo's of Mickey. Drain instead.

    And I am very glad that George H. Ruth has come on the scene, Tara. Really neat seeing some of the Babe pitching for the Yankees. I was hoping there would be one from the game on October 1, 1921 - where Babe hit little Whitey Witt, of the Athletics, with a pitch in a relief appearance.

    The second picture had to be from that crazy game in 1930 where Babe pitched and Lou played left field. They didn't have "Yankees" on their away uniform in 1933.

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

    Theres a lot of players that had big muscles and like to show them off, but no one like Jimmie Foxx did, so that brings me to my next legend. Jimmie Foxx.

    That isn't Jackie Mitchell, is it?









    Damn. To me, Foxx looks a lot like one of the Baldwin brothers. Maybe that brother should play Foxx in a movie.

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

    No Dave that isn't Jackie Mitchell it's Babe Didrikson, the picture was taken March 19, 1934.

    Jimmie Foxx as always been one of my favorite players. I would love to see a movie dedicated to him.

    That photo of Foxx with Ruth and Gehrig I recognize as the one they pasted a young James Earle Jones' face over in The Sandlot.

    It kinda looks like Ben Chapman. But it's hard to say because I'm kinda seeing double. I think that's Monte Pearson on the other side of Joe D.

    When's this photo from?

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

    The player on the right of Joe D is Bill Dickey.

    I'll be posting more pictures of the great Dimmagio shortly.

    Hey, Tara. Maybe Babe might know who the guy is in that picture of the unknown Yankee player or coach we all had a discussion over some months back ... but I don't remember which thread? Do you know what I'm talking about?

    You sure about that? If it is, it's a really bad angle of him. When's the photo from?

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

    I'm not exactly sure when it was dated, but I know it's between 36-39.

    Yes I am sure it's Bill Dickey.

    P.S is it possible to sticky this thread? I'll be postings tons and tons of more pictures. ITs going to become bigger then the other photo threads at these forums.

    Yeah, the 36-39 was as far as I got, too -- doesn't help much.

    The guy standing could be Art Fletcher. And obviously that's McCarthy far left.

    I don't know about stickying. You'll have to ask a mod. Usually that's reserved for more important threads, like announcements and things you don't want to see buried. If you keep updating this it'll keep going to the top of the pile, so probably unnecessary.
