In 1957 Red Top Brewing Co. created an advertising display series featuring hall of fame athletes. This one depicts the great Yankee slugger, Babe Ruth. The display features an 8" metal figure of Ruth, painted gold and mounted on a black coated cardboard sign measuring 5.5 x 10.5". The sign also had embossed gold lettering and a sticker on the back giving Ruth's baseball biography. The display piece has hanging holes in the top corners and on the bottom edge. The edges show quite a bit of wear and the cardboard is separating into layers, especially at the corners. The figure itself has a bit of the paint worn off at the elbow, hand, toes and hat brim. Overall, though, this is a great looking vintage display and fine piece of Ruth memorabilia.
