Babe Ruth Memorabilia Still Rules

A Babe Ruth baseball card and a game-used barnstorming cap sold for a combined $221,075 in an auction held over the weekend. The Babe’s barnstorming cap, worn on a trip to California in the late 1920s, drew a lot of attention in Heritage Galleries’ catalog sale over the weekend. The cap sold for $131,450 including the company’s 19.5% buyer’s premium. Passed down through the original recipient’s family, the cap was given to a woman described as a hotel pastry chef at the conclusion of Ruth’s ‘Bustin’ Babes’ tour.
