    Description

    1920 Babe Ruth "Headin' Home" (Bat Extended to Right) SGC Authentic. This fantastically rare series was a promotional give-away announcing the arrival of the famous film starring Yankees star Babe Ruth in "Headin' Home." As such, these cards will have a strong appeal for both card collectors and movie memorabilia collectors alike. The set is catalogued separately as a Tex Rickard production but are also found with blank backs and ads for other theatres or entertainment events. Offered is a rare "Bat Extended to Right" card with an "WELCOME THEATRE - HERE Next Wed" stamp on the reverse. With all of these cards, an image of a youthful Bambino dominates the front, with this offering, it displays a classic portrait of Ruth with his bat in hand. Encapsulated SGC Authentic for hand cut borders. The image quality is excellent. This small but significant Ruth promotion is known for poor processing resulting in irregular edges.
