Enhance your Sports Memorabilia Collection with this First Edition of "The Babe Ruth Story"

As the nation turns their attention to the upcoming World Series games between the Phillies and the Astros, we want to highlight our first edition printing of The Babe Ruth Story, written by Babe Ruth and Bob Considine and published in 1948. Babe Ruth's dominance on the baseball field and his countless records made him a mythic figure in the sport. He is behind some of the most memorable moments in baseball history, like calling his home run shot in the 1932 World Series and initiating the "Curse of the Bambino" when he was traded from the Red Sox to the Yankees in 1920.

This biography takes the reader through Ruth’s life, starting from his early discovery of the game, playing the school fields of Baltimore, to his first seasons as a pro, his time with the Baltimore Orioles, the Red Soxs, and his remarkable era with the Yankees. All the while, it covers topics such as friendship, love, success and failure. While the book serves primarily as a personal record of an outstanding career, secondarily it offers the inside story of the building of the game of baseball to its place as America’s favorite pastime. 

The Babe Ruth Story written by Babe Ruth and Bob Considine
