    1930s Babe Ruth Book and Miniature Bat. The Bambino was the subject of numerous books and he participated in several publications, as well. His fame knew no limits during the 1930s and that era is represented here via 1935 "Babe Ruth's Big Book of Baseball"- Quaker Cereal promotional booklet. By Babe Ruth. 64 pp. Poor to Fair condition exhibited. Also included is a charming little replica (16" long) of the bat taken to the plate by the great Bambino in the 1927 World Series. It has survived the passing of decades remarkably well, with adhesive remnants the most notable wear. A great addition to any collection of Ruth memorabilia.
