1960's - 70's Type 4 photo. We had an expert examine the photo. His conclusion was likely a 60's print. The interesting thing is this was long assumed to be a studio photo, but it's actually an outdoor shot at an exhibition game in 1919 Possibly Ruth's last photo as a member of the Red Sox. The negative was altered and this new shot was created. This is on double thick photo paper and dies not flouresce under black light. While it's not as old as we hoped, it seems to be about the oldest iteration of this photo out there.
