Description

    1927 Babe Ruth Cigarette Case. If any helpful collector in the Heritage family is able to shed light on the derivation of this intriguing relic, please send us an email and we'll update this listing online. But, as of right now, all we can do is report upon the appearance and condition of this mysterious article, a standard-sized hinged cigarette case stamped "F&M, Extra Quality Silverplate" inside. But, of course, it's the lid that draws the eye, featuring a worn ceramic bust of the Babe beside an engraved circle containing the words, "New York May 1927." No true Yankees fan needs to be reminded of the accomplishments of Ruth and his team during that historic season. Case is solid and functions perfectly, with typical tarnishing evident. Clearly a rare relic from Murderer's Row, as we've never seen another.
