Description

History tells us that this game was publicly available both before and after the Bambino's passing in 1948. Earlier advertisements show Ruth and William Bendix (star of The Babe Ruth Story) playing it together, while later ads refer to Babe in the past tense. This example of the once-popular pastime measures 19x25 and is in PR to FR condition, missing its die-cast batter, metal baseball and strike-zone pole, as well as most of the metal inserts that surround each fielder. The backing paper listing the various plays along three sides is mostly intact.
