Wondering if anyone has knowledge of the photo from which this postcard was made? Sgc dates it to 1915 but who knows for sure. Iím hoping Ruth might be in there somewhere, maybe right even in the middle with the bat? Sure looks like his big head in profile. Anyway, any help would be welcomed.

It does look like Ruth, but it's not. Some that have emerged over the years have back stamps of 1912-1913, so can't be him.

Here is what I have in the postcards:

(3) Pub. by A. Israelson & Co., 1 dated 1915, 1 dated 1916
(2) Pub. by M. Abrams, Roxbury, Mass., 1 dated 1916
(1) Pub. by Mason Bros. & Co.
(1) Last scan, no publisher on card back, different fonts on back, card is smaller/trimmed? than others...postmark is/could be 1913 or maybe 1908. Many variations in publishers, front card titles, back fonts...etc

Does look like Babe at bat, but also the player by the dugout/reaching into stands looks like him as well!!!

I believe a ungraded 1915 postcard recently sold in PWCC auction for just under $500. Maybe someone could check on that.

Ruth is in the bleachers.

I think you meant Ruth is at St Maryís Industrial School in Baltimore.

Here's Campf's old thread on it, I recall seeing the 1914 postal mark before the photos and posts were deleted.

We have a mutual friend in Matt George by the way Tom.
