Babe Ruth Exhibit Part of the Return of Sports at Long Beach Expo

An exhibit of historic, valuable Babe Ruth memorabilia will be featured at the upcoming Long Beach Coin, Stamp & Collectibles Expo, May 31 – June 2, 2012, as part of the eagerly anticipated return of sports collectibles to the popular show. The display by JP Cohen of Memory Lane will include rare baseball cards, autographs and memorabilia, including a Ruth-signed bat.

“The Babe Ruth items will be exhibited in the Collectibles Display area, a prominent new feature for each Long Beach Expo that will showcase outstanding collectibles for public viewing,” said Ronald J. Gillio, Expo General Chairman. “There will be 18 Ruth items in the exhibit with a combined value of $314,000.”

The display will include a 1915 Sporting News M101-15 #151 blank back card graded PSA 4; vintage photographs; a Babe Ruth-autographed single-signed baseball; a paycheck to Ruth; a letter signed twice by Ruth; and a signed Ruth bat graded PSA/DNA 9.

After a decade’s absence, the three-times-a-year Long Beach Expo again will now include top dealers buying and selling sports collectibles, such as trading cards, autographs, game-used equipment and other sports-related memorabilia. The show will be held in the Long Beach, California Convention Center, 100 S. Pine Ave.

Public hours will be Thursday and Friday, May 31 and June 1, from 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, June 2, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Public admission is $8 (good for all three days); $4 for members of any coin or stamp club; $4 for seniors 65 and older and for children ages 8 to 16. Admission is free admission for PSA and PCGS Collectors Club members, PSA, PCGS and PSE Set Registrants, PCGS CoinFacts subscribers, PSA and PCGS Authorized Dealers and children ages 7 and younger.
