    PAIR OF BABE RUTH POCKET KNIVES. A better authority than we may affirm that these two mini pocket knives were sponsored by Quaker Oats.  Regardlessly, they are identical except for their material.  They are 2 1/2" long (without the attachment hook), and both bear the simulated autograph of Babe Ruth.  No manufacturer is evident, and both are mildly tarnished (but not oxidized).  And as is obvious, they are crafted in the form of bats.  We evaluate these as EX, but when cleaned, condition will be enhanced.  Though the inscriptions are etched in the handles, that of the darker knife is obscured by the color, while the lighter one is immediately legible.
