1948 Babe Ruth Wristwatch in Original Box

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,044.00

Babe Ruth wristwatch complete with original plastic ball case, inserts, and retail display box. This classic Ruth collectible is rarely found in such fine condition and with all of its original packaging and accessories. Manufactured by the Exacta Time Corporation, the colorful watch features Ruth's image on the facing along with his facsimile signature. Included with the watch is the original plastic ball case, the instruction sheet (which features a photo of Ruth on the first page, Vg-Ex), a Babe Ruth sportsman's pledge card, and the original retail display box (also featuring a photo of Ruth on two sides). The box is in Vg condition, with a some general shelf wear, a few creases, a few notations on the top and bottom, and one side flap detached but present. Though the box has minor imperfections, this is actually a reasonably high grade for this box, and it is ideal for display. The box is rare and usually found in much lower grade. The watch appears to no longer be in working order but is in Near Mint condition. The plastic ball case is also in Nr/Mt condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,044.00
