Odd/Hilarious Photo of Babe Ruth With a Bat Between His Legs Is Up For Auction (Pic)

I don’t know why this photo is so funny, but it is. I mean, the slugger has the bat positioned between his legs in a pretty suggestive fashion, but that’s not the extent of the humor. I think it’s that, combined with the sepia-hued old-timey look, along with that very plain expression on Babe Ruth‘s face.

It looks like he’s joking around, but not having any fun doing it. Take a look:


The Babe!

Bidding is currently just under $2,000, but will be much higher after some jokester empties his savings account to score this pic from the estate of Ed Wells, one of Ruth’s teammates who had the locker next to him. If you’re so inclined, you can bid on the item here.

Hat Tip – [FTW]
