    Description

    "BABE RUTH" UNDERWEAR. To place Babe Ruth endorsements in exact perspective, it's widely acknowledged that Ruth never wore underwear in his life.  So much for the approval of good authority.  Nonetheless, Babe knew where to sign the contract, and thus was launched one of his better commercial successes.  Of that marketing coup, we here make available one unit of "Babe Ruth Underwear."  Should the winner care to model this lingerie, it's size 48, and remains neatly folded in the original box.  The box, of course, is the focus of collector interest.  It's 9 3/4" x 12 1/2" x 2 3/4".  (Actually, this standard two-piece box was originally packaged with six such garments.)  Critically speaking, it's about GD/VG with considerable wear at two corners, moderate wear along the lid's bottom edge and a measured amount of compression.  To its credit though, this box, both top and bottom halves, are firm with no splits at the corners or side panels.  And at the heart of it, the portrait image of an approving Babe, and the lid's caption, are uniformly clean and unblemished.
