    1920 Babe Ruth "Headin' Home" Theatre Cards - Bat On Shoulder, Full-Length SGC Authentic. This auction features a trio of these fantastically rare cards! The cards were a promotional give-away announcing the arrival of the famous film starring New York Yankees and silver screen - Babe Ruth. Backs can be blank or feature advertising for various movie houses. This card displays an ad for the Metropolitan Opera House promoting the movie and Del Deibert's Broadway Jazz Boys. This card has been hand cut and measures 1-1/2 x 2-7/8." An image of a youthful Bambino dominates the front, this being his "Bat On Shoulder, Full-Length" pose. Aside from the cut, there is a lone crease in the upper corner to note. Encapsulated SGC Authentic, one of only two reviewed by SGC, both with the same assessment.
