what do you think of this photo in terms of age and value?

Is that a baseball card? If not, it really doesn't belong in this pre-ward card section. I will move it. thanks

"future wife" Claire

They married in 1929 so it would be before that.

I don't think that is Claire, and I think the photo is late 1930's.

$50-90? It really depends - I've sold better Ruth photos for less, and lesser Ruth photos for more.

I agree Scott, I don't think it is Claire either.
It looks like an original photo, but because of the wording on the back, was the photo created some time after the pictured event.
Not too desirable to me.

Looks like a late 1930's example to me (and not from the original negative) so it would be a second generation image (Type IV if using the PSA system). In other words, exactly what was already stated :)

That's kind of an ugly couple. ;)
