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!

The ears are wrong. Clearly not Ruth. Maybe Cobb? You should sell it to Jeff L.

Nope, it looks much more like a young Chief Bender or Honus Wagner.

You're all wrong. It's Moses Fleetwood Murakami.

You guys have it all wrong. It's clearly Joe Jackson.

Leon,
You may be right. It can't be Honus as the ears are not right and there is no prehistoric farm implement in the background. Now it may be Chief Bender or Joe Jackson.

I prefer to discuss my photo with either very serious advanced collectors or advanced Ruth collectors with expertise in this field that might have productive feedback. Sorry, I don't have time for comical evaluations. (Phone:573-450-0590) Any imput + personal privacy will be held strictly confidential! Until!

Not sure apologies are needed. Poster failed to post a scan. What does he expect?
