    TWO BABE RUTH BOOKS. The collector who cares to expand his library of period Babe Ruth books must consider this opportunity.  The first of this twosome is the hardbound Babe Ruth The Idol of the American Boy (Daniel, 1930, Whitman Publishing).  This 108-pager features an abundance of Charles Conlin photos, and its publication page acknowledges Christy Walsh.  The pages are minimally EX/MT (a very few with inexact cut), and the cover is about EX with a minor ding in the lower right.  Otherwise it is clean with a solid spine.  The second volume is the 64-page softbound Babe Ruth's Big Book of Baseball.  This is the popular Quaker Oats premium of 1935.  It appears that this one was never read, as the spine is as firm as new.  However, there's minor damage on the cover with a 1" tear (no paper loss) extending from the left.  Additional shipping cost may apply.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
