Description



After extensive searching and looking at countless images, we have concluded there are no other examples of this Babe Ruth crystal paperweight. This 3" dome-shaped artifact features a profile image of Ruth in a Boston Braves uniform that was cropped from a photo taken on 4/23/35, picturing the Babe shaking hands with Giants star Bill Terry during his first return to New York City after joining the Braves in 1935. Ringing the photo around the perimeter is a scalloped accent cut to simulate the shimmer of diamonds, with the side painted over in gold leaf. Cresting at 1-1/2" high at center, this unknown desktop decoration shows moderate wear, but remains pleasing. The reverse is marked with "Babe Ruth; 1935; Nktco." and no results regarding this "Nkt" manufacturer were discovered by our research team. Take your best cut to score this one-of-a-kind Ruth collectible.
