Default 1920's Babe Ruth studio photo

I just recently picked this up but was hoping to get more info on it. Its not the thin ones I see in auctions but this one is sepia toned on double weight paper. Not glossy at all. Definitely looks period. Anyone seen one before?

Also note that the autographs are different note the "E" in Babe on both photos among other differences.

The reason for that is quite simple. The second photo was signed by Ruth. The first was not.

Ya the first is definitely secretarial but I think this mightve been a rough copy to see how they wanted it to look in the end.
