Description

    1926 Babe Ruth "Along Came Ruth" Original Sheet Music Lot of 2. This lot represents material directly from "The Christy Walsh Estate," which has been in storage since his passing in 1955 and now brought to surface by his descendants. All of this correspondence have been stored in the original files Christy had since 1921 and represents his own personal mementos, business affairs etc. particularly that with Babe Ruth. The first true super agent!

    Two pieces of 9x12" six-page sheet music for "Along Came Ruth" written by famed American composer and songwriter Irving Berlin. It is interesting to note that although this song was written and published in 1914, the year of Ruth's debut with the Red Sox, the original song was not about Babe Ruth or baseball. It wasn't until the 1920's that Christy Walsh had this special baseball version of Berlin's tune published. During that time Walsh sought to capitalize on Ruth's immense popularity by marketing the star in every manner possible, with this example being one of his more novel ideas.
