Comments

The "Babe Ruth All America Board of Baseball" award was conceived in 1924 by sports agent Christy Walsh, to be presented each season to the most outstanding player at each of the nine positions. The award was a precursor to the All-Star tradition, among the most cherished honors of its time, voted on by Ruth and a select group of sportswriters from baseball cities. Several Hall-of-Famer's, including Ruth's teammate Lou Gehrig, were recipients of the award. The present photograph depicts Ruth and nine of his fellow board members seated at a table, in front of a wall-length All America banner, determining candidates for the award from the 1932-1933 season. An excellent inscription and a historic photograph.
