Description



Presented is a 1916-1921 Interesting Babe Ruth Content Newspaper Collection of (3). Spanning Ruth’s impressive career as both a hurler and a slugger, this is a must-have lot for baseball collectors and certain specimens have excellent potential for framing and display. Includes: 1) Thursday October 6, 1921 The Bethlehem Globe newspaper: 20 page paper presenting very well in VG-EX condition with deference to crinkling and minor tears which predominantly do not affect the ability of the reader to decipher the words. Interesting 1921 World Series and Babe Ruth content including “Stunt by Mrs. Babe Ruth” mini article documenting how the spouse of “The Bambino” would be in a seaplane dropping baseballs attached to parachutes with personal messages of encouragement; 2) Friday July 16, 1920 The Springfield Daily Republican newspaper: 16 page paper presenting very well in VG-EX condition with deference to crinkling, minor tears and moderate staining which predominantly do not affect the ability of the reader to decipher the words. Interesting Babe Ruth content including “Ruth’s 29th Homer Wins for Yankees” article documenting each longball that has been hit by the legendary slugger and 3) Wednesday August 16, 1916 New York Times newspaper: 18 page paper presenting in VG condition with deference to crinkling, minor tears and moderate staining which predominantly do not affect the ability of the reader to decipher the words. There is a small tear on the left side of the paper. Ruth related content includes an article documenting Ruth outdueling Walter Johnson in a thirteen inning classic. World War I content interestingly decorates the front cover. All of the included papers are very fragile and should be handled with care.
