1920s Babe Ruth Underwear Box

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $920.00

Babe Ruth's popularity extended far beyond the baseball diamond. The "Bambino" starred in movies, rubbed elbows with all the celebrities of his era, and lent his name to everything from wristwatches to candy bars. However, let us not forget Babe Ruth brand underwear! Fortunately, this box, which once housed the Babe's favorite brand of undergarments, survives as a reminder. The original box features a colorful portrait of Ruth on the cover, which makes this box ideal for display, as well as a source of amusement for serious collectors and non-collectors alike. These fragile boxes are rare, especially in such fine condition. The offered example has no restoration, exhibits only very modest wear primarily to the corners, and is in overall Excellent condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $920.00
