    Babe Ruth Print Used on the Cover of 1948 "SPORT" Magazine Issue.
    The Sultan of Swat appeared on the cover of SPORT magazine in May of 1948, just months before losing his battle with cancer, with the headline reading "CAN THEY SMASH THE BABE RUTH RECORD?" referring to sluggers Ralph Kiner, Johnny Mize, and Ted Williams.

    Offered is a black-and-white print of the image used on the cover. Originally rendered by Griffith Foxley, this 11x14" version has been mounted to a thick cardboard display piece with a collapsible stand on the reverse. Moderate edge wear shown throughout, but displays impeccably.
