Lelands: The Babe, Gehrig and Chaps

Here is a great photo that recently sold in Lelands recent December auction of a less portly Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and some youthful fans during a 1928 barnstorming tour. Ruth's "Bustin' Babes" faced off again Gehrig's "Larrupin Lou's." The best part of the photo are those kids wearing the extremely furry chaps. They look as happy as can be, but Ruth can't sport a smile. I'm not sure what's on his mind. Maybe it's the silliness of the moment, or, maybe, he's envious of those chaps. On the other hand, maybe he lost that afternoons game to Lou. It sold for $442.88.
