Description



In Babe Ruth's rookie season, when the phenom went 18-8 and his Red Sox won the World Series, team owner Joseph Lannin came up with an innovative promotion. Any resident from his hometown of Rockland, MA, would receive free Fenway entry on August 3rd. Ernie Shore took home the victory that day, and spectators took home this memento. The 1-1/4"-diameter celluloid button is a NM blazer, with an equally impressive flag ribbon. Wonderful preservation. One of only a few known surviving examples!
