The greatest collection of Babe Ruth baseball cards ever assembled will be on display at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention at the Memory Lane’s Booth in Baltimore August 1-5. The Don Spence Babe Ruth Master Collection is ranked as the finest in existence on PSA’s Set Registry. Memory Lane will also be launching its Aug 18th catalog auction at the National.
The auction will feature a variety of vintage Ruth items including a signed glove, signed baseballs, a 1916 M101-5 Ruth rookie card, graded PSA 4 and a group of Ruth autographed items that come directly from the family of Christy Walsh, Ruth’s long-time business manager and marketing agent. Those pieces include Walsh’s 1947 World series admittance pass used for all 4 games and signed by Ruth, Cy Young, Frank Baker and other stars, another a canceled trust check double signed by The Bambino and cashed on the very day he hit the first of his record-setting 60 home runs in 1927.
