Please share if you have any.

The earliest I've found so far is from the August, 1915 issue of 'Baseball Magazine'. I may also have a Spring Training photo with him, from the April, 1915 issue.

Little earlier than this one, but Ruth was included in the 1914 Providence Grays Team Photo & the Baltimore Orioles team photo both located in the 1915 reach guide...

Thanks Dave. Yes, I have seen those. I'm more curious about earliest pictures of him as a member of the Boston Red Sox.

Here is one from Spring Training, 1915 - from the May,1915 issue of 'Baseball Magazine':

Scott, you may recall my photo from spring training 1915, which we discussed last year....

Yep, thanks for posting!

Also, for those of you who collect Ruth photos, you might want to save a copy of the first one I posted in this thread - I thought it was the same as a common shot of him, but the angle is slightly different. Same session, but different photo.

Here's the more common one:
