The Babe Ruth Story - Movie Press Book, Del Ruth, Roy
8 Del Ruth, Roy The Babe Ruth Story - Movie Press Book
Los Angeles, California Irv Dietz 1948 Soft Cover Near Fine 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Complete. 16 un-numbered pages including the cover. Sound stapled binding. Clean with only a bit of wear along the spine. Issued to publicize the Allied Arts motion picture starring William Bendix that was rushed into production while Babe Ruth was still alive. Photographs throughout including one of Ruth showing Bendix how to hold a baseball bat. Other photos include Bendix receiving instruction from a number of major leaguers, Babe visiting the movie studio in Hollywood, Bendix during a make-up session, and many, many scenes from the film. Although critically panned as one of the worst sports bio-pics ever made, it remains a fan favorite in part due to a number of unintentionally funny scenes, e.g., the grossly exaggerated and maudlinized version of Ruth's home run for Johnny Sylvester and the similarly embellished final scene where a youthful chorus outside the Babe's hospital window sings a beautiful dirge-like version of Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Bright, fresh, and clean. See accompanying scanned image.

Game 6, 2011 World Series Season Ticket with Signed Photograph of David Freese Hitting His Walk-Off Home Run, Freese, David
11 Freese, David Game 6, 2011 World Series Season Ticket with Signed Photograph of David Freese Hitting His Walk-Off Home Run
Major League Baseball 2011 Ephemera Near Fine 
Two pieces of memorabilia from one of the greatest World Series games ever played: 1) A season ticket holder ticket to Game 6 between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers played at Busch Stadium for Section 511, Row 31, Seat 9. 2) An autographed front-on photograph of David Freeze hitting the 12th inning walk-off home run that sent the series on to Game 7. (A snapshot of Freese signing the home run photo is included.) Senior ESPN analyst, Buster Olney called it the greatest baseball game ever. I don't know if I'd go that far, but it was certainly one of the most exciting Worlds Series games ever played. Facing elimination and twice being within one strike of going home, the Cardinals rallied back from two-run deficits in both the 9th and the 10th innings before David Freese's homer caused pandemonium in St. Louis and Joe Buck to echo his father's famous call, "We will see you again tomorrow night." Ticket, photograph, and signature are in nice shape.

16 Lynn Base Ball Association Lynn Base Ball Association Grand Assembly Dance Card
Lynn, Massachusetts Lynn Base Ball Association 1903 Booklet Near Fine 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall 
Scarce piece of baseball ephemera shows a picture of a player being tagged out as he slides into base. The dance card is for the "Grand Assembly and Dance Under the Auspices of Lynn Base Ball Association" held at the East Lynn Odd Fellows' Hall on Friday evening, April 3rd, 1903. The four-page cardboard program is unused. The "Order of Dances" include several with baseball titles, "The Opening Game," "Base Hit," "Our Captain," "Home Run," etc. The rear cover lists organizers of the dance, presumably players for the team. The Lynn Base Ball Association was founded in 1875, and at various times it fielded independent teams or a mid-level American League minor league team in the New England League. Dance card has not been filled out and includes the original string tie. Very attractive.
