Set Description:
One of the rarest Babe Ruth cardboard artifacts is the 7” x 9-1/4” premium photo issued by the Pathe Freres Phonograph Co. of Brooklyn, New York in 1920. Seldom surfacing within the hobby, this magnificent three quarter body shot of the “Bambino” adorning his 1920 first year Yankee pinstripes is one of Ruth’s earliest issued New York Yankee cards. The photo’s copyright is attributed to New York’s “White Studio” while the reverse side provides an account of his home runs through September 13, 1920. This photo was issued as a premium for the Pathe Co.’s record disk that included Ruth himself narrating his own “Babe Ruth Home Run Story” on side 1, with the flipside including a period “Fox Trot” music selection.
