    Description

    1948 Christy Walsh Typed "Western Union" Telegram to Mrs. George H. Ruth in Sympathy of the Passing of Babe Ruth - Sent on the Day of Ruth's Death. 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!

    Measuring at 6" x 8.25", with light wear, this highly-significant piece reads: "There were just two many extra innings for Babes poor overworked heart. Thank God his suffering has ended. Please accept my sympathy. Sincerely Christy Walsh."
