1940's Babe Ruth Color Poster

1940's Babe Ruth Color Poster

Only one of a very few of these that we have seen. Designed to be used for advertising campaigns but never widely distributed. Actual colorized photo of Babe wearing Yankee home pinstipes and holding three bats. He is smiling but looks sort of haggared with a few days worth of whiskers. Image dates from one of his returns to Yankee Stadium during the 1940's. There is a small amount of writing on the front of the poster and a 2 inch by 1/4 piece of paper missing up by Babe's right ear. Some wrinkles, tack holes in the corners and two small areas of paper loss. Despite the flaws, this would look even more incredible if framed and matted. Advertising at the bottom has either been cut off or was never there.
