If this tête-à-tête looks familiar, it’s likely because an identical scene taken from a slightly different angle graced the Dec. 1923 cover of Baseball Magazine. An original photo of that version sold in 2013 for over $700, but we’re partial to this one because of its horizontal orientation, allowing a fuller view of Ruppert and a wider lens on the surrounding spectators—including a gentleman conspicuously holding the '23 W.S. program picturing managers McGraw and Huggins. The 7 x 9-1/2" photo may derive from Bain's News Service given the Culver Pictures overstampings and the numerical code at bottom right. Typical minor peripheral handling wear from newsroom usage.
