Sluggers keep getting bigger, stronger and faster, but Babe Ruth still is the only one to have hit 700+ home runs, and bat over .340 lifetime. Ruth's accomplishments will always be revered by baseball fans, and his collectibles will always be in high demand. Here's a chance to add a few more Ruth related items to your collection, with this 1920s-1980s lot of (4). 

Featured are:

1920s Ruth's Home Run candy bar wrapper measuring 7-1/2 x 5", with the legend "Babe Ruth's Own Candy" printed on an oval portrait of the Yankees legend, and facsimile signatures on all four borders, rates as (PR) due to several small holes in the lower left region and some surface loss on the right border; 

1930s Esso Babe Ruth Boys Club pin with a 1-1/2" diameter, shows bold paint and nice luster, but rates as (VG-EX) due to small surface abrasions/scratches;

1930s Esso Bath Ruth Boys Club contest coupon with stated prizes of a Ruth fielder's glove, a Ruth signed baseball, and trip to Ruth's Spring Training Camp. The graphics and lettering are distinct and the surface is fairly clean, however notches of surface loss on the top and bottom edges force a (PR) grade, though otherwise it presents better;

1980s First Day Cover with Babe Ruth postage stamp and Chicago postmark dated 7/6/83, crisp and clean (EX-MT+).
