There is a famous photo of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig wearing their Bustin' Babes and Larrupin' Lous barnstorming uniforms. The photo taken dates back to the historic national Barnstorming tour. Pioneering sports agent Christy Walsh was the mind behind both this tour and this souvenir photograph that was sold at one of the ballparks the Home Run King and American League MVP visited in the weeks following the Yanks' four-game Series sweep in 1927.
