Fans of Babe Ruth and dirty jokes have been presented with quite an opportunity. 

Lelands Auctions has a one-of-a-kind photo of the Babe described, with frightening accuracy, as a “Babe Ruth bat penis snapshot.” The photo “shows the Babe with bat between his legs like it was his penis,” the description says.

Yeah, that’s exactly what he’s doing.

The photo was actually taken by Ruth’s Yankees teammate Ed “Satchelfoot” Wells and is supposedly a reference to “the prodigious size of Ruth’s member.” But sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. 

The bidding currently stands at $1,948.72.
