    MOST UNUSUAL LARGE 1922 BABE RUTH POSTER. This imposing 21_ x 35" poster was a premium put out by the Evening Journal in mid-season. It pictures the Babe with Philles’ slugger Cy Williams, who at that point had a slim lead over Ruth, 27-25, in the season’s home run derby. Prominently listed is the daily record of Ruth’s 1921 59- home-run season. Great content in text at bottom about the match up. While printed on newsprint, this is clearly a poster, not a newspaper cut-out. Normally a big piece of newsprint like this from this era would be falling apart, but this one is professionally linen-backed and in NM condition! Super large, early Ruth display piece!
