    Description

    1920 Babe Ruth "Headin' Home" Original Release Window Card. The Babe definitely made a splash his first season in the Big Apple. In a trade that would levy a decades-long curse on the heads of the Boston Red Sox, the young phenom donned his Yankee pinstripes to great success this season, batting .376 and knocking fifty-four long balls over the fence, four more than the combined total for any other American League team. If there was ever a star in the making, it was the Babe. After this amazing season, the public clamored for more, so the Babe made his motion picture debut in "Headin' Home." This window card has minor surface wrinkles, small tears, and the bottom two inches of the card has been replaced. The card has been professionally restored, rendering those defects very hard to detect. More importantly, it displays just beautifully and is one of only two examples known.
