    1948 Babe Ruth Wristwatch & Baseball Packaging. Released shortly after the sad passing of this baseball icon, this special wristwatch by Exacta counts the hours of Ruth's eternal reign over the baseball world. The child's size sterling silver timepiece offers a great portrait of the Bambino on the face, and presents in fully-functional NRMT condition. The plastic baseball in which it was packaged is present as well, showing a small degree of wear that rates the piece EX overall. Cardboard insert is missing. Included with the lot is a page removed from a period Life Magazine that advertises the watch at a price of $7.95. Inflation will find the bid price a bit higher here.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
