His diamond heroics drawing adoration on and beyond the diamond, Babe Ruth is the subject of these (4) tributes. Includes:
1925 Mid-Week Pictorial: issued by the New York Times on April 16, 1925, the 28-page magazine features Ruth on the front cover and previews the Major League season on the interior. While scribe W.D. Richardson couldn’t possibly have the foresight to predict the Yankees’ lone losing campaign over a 46-year span (1919-1964), there was a hint of concern as the preview cited Ruth’s spring training arrival at plus-50 pounds. The magazine is complete with minor cover/edge wear.
1928 Sheet Music/Lapel Pin: composed and published in 1928 by J.W. Spencer, the four-page sheet music features a colorful illustration of Ruth on the cover, with bass and treble clef scores/lyrics of the musical tribute “Babe Ruth! Babe Ruth! We Know What He Can Do” on the inside. Presents nicely with edge wear, a few creases and evidence of handling. Also included is a 7/8”-diameter pinback with the song title and “25 CENTS” price.
1941 The Sporting News Supplement: a 6 x 9-1/8” black-and-white photo of Ruth with a listing of his 54 Major League records on the reverse. Presents (VG).
