    Description

    Babe Comes Home (First National, 1927). Lobby Card (11" X 14"). Of all the sluggers that have ever taken up a bat in pursuit of the Great American Pastime, none has proven more legendary than the Great Bambino, the Sultan of Swat... the immortal George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Not just a ball player, Ruth was a media sensation, a hard-playing, hard-living hero to his millions of fans worldwide. Capitalizing on his considerable fame, Ruth first appeared on the screen in 1920's Headin' Home, the story of the great athlete's life. During the ensuing decade, baseball's popularity skyrocketed, due, in large part, to Ruth's presence. In 1927, at the peak of his athletic career and now with the New York Yankees, he made Babe Comes Home, a film now presumed lost, produced using the Vocafilm sound-on-film process that was primarily used for shorts.
    This stunning lobby shows baseball's greatest player rounding the bases. This important and historical card displays a very tiny stain in the right border. Very Fine+.
