1948 Babe Ruth Wristwatch in Original Case
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $474
Babe Ruth wristwatch complete with original plastic ball case. Manufactured by the Exacta Time Corporation, the colorful watch features Ruth's image on the facing along with his facsimile signature. The original ball case is lettered "Official Babe Ruth Wrist Watch/Sports Watch of Champions." This piece has always been highly regarded by collectors for its outstanding display value, especially when accompanied by its original plastic baseball case (which of course is almost always lost), and the offered example is no exception. The watch, which is in working order, displays a number of light scratches on the reverse which have since been affected by oxidation; however, the facing and front of the watch are Near Mint in appearance, making it perfect for display. The plastic ball case has a minor 1.5-inch diagonal crack and is in Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $474
