Needed: Opinions from advanced Ruth Collectors. For your consideration a small Black & White original photo that resembles a very young George, possibly between 7-12 years old. Also in the image a girl whom maybe his sister Mamie. I suspect childhood Ruth images are quite scarce, especially with family so it may be difficult for imput. I hope the surrounding neighborhood in the photo,Mamie,etc. may offer clue's. Although the boys batting stance is righty, this could be caused by a reverse negative, a quick pose, or a playful prank for the camera?--In any event you may find this image fascinating!--thanks!
I recently posted a snapshot that I thought might have been a young Ruth before he was famous, and the board pretty much shot it down as not him. But it was good fun and there is no reason not to post yours here.

Directly,
I need to say "Thank You!" A Co~worker of mine(who's from Alabama) told me a couple of weeks ago that he has a friend who's Sister is also his Mother!? At that time(Up until now!)I just was so confused, my head actualy hurted! If ya know what I mean...........
Since you edjamacated me that the Babe's Sis is his Mamie, I now truly understand how this can be! What a relief

Can I git a look at the photo you mentioned?



Life's Grand,
Denny Walsh

Has anyone noticed anything else unusual + unique concerning Ruth's pose in his 1911-12 St Mary's team photo?

He's wearing a right handed catcher's mitt? Not a big deal...he still played catcher left handed. He wore the mitt on the wrong hand.

American flag has 48 stars dating the pic to 1912 at the earliest when Arizona and New Mexico became the 47th and 48th states.

Instead of noticing unusual and unique stuff about that image on the Sporting News card, I'd prefer to notice aspects of the photo that you've mentioned but has yet to be posted.

I will post my photo tomorrow.
Remember as Slidekellyslide pointed out. Ruth as a 17 year old wearing his mit on the wrong hand isn't a big deal.
I agree, so please keep this in mind. Until!
