Lelands Auction Offers Rare Babe Ruth ‘Bat Penis’ Photo
Babe Ruth is widely considered the greatest baseball player in history, and the Sultan of Swat always posed posed for pictures in a very tasteful manner....until now. Lelands auction house is offering up a one-of-a-kind photograph of Ruth posing with a bat between his legs. The picture was taken by Yankees teammate Ed Wells during the years 1929-1932, and the rare portrait of the Bambino is now available for auction. Interestingly enough, the famous "NY" in the home pinstripe jerseys had been removed by the Yankees in 1917 and it wasn't brought back until 1936.
"The image was obtained directly from the Wells Estate several years back, and is an interesting reference to the prodigious size of Ruth’s member which remains a part of the Bambino's legend," the description of the photo states on Lelands.com. Currently, the price is at $1,948, and the auction still has 10 days left.
