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.

Apparently I've got far too much time on my hands right now. Below I made my own very special Topps Allen & Ginter Baseball card featuring Matt Kemp being hazed last season. Print it out, paste onto cardboard and trade with your friends.
