    Description

    Al Smith: Wonderful Babe Ruth Endorsement Poster. 28" x 22" poster titled: "Champions of the World! Champions of Al Smith". It has a portrait of the 1928 Democratic candidate above a group shot of the World's Champion Yankee team holding up signs that read "For Al Smith". Issued by the Democratic National Committee in New York, it depicts but a handful of the 1000 college, amateur and professional athletes pledged to vote for Smith. Besides Ruth, the pictures show James J. Corbett, Gene Tunney, Knute Rockne, John McGraw, Gene Sarazen and Benny Leonard. A few very minor edge tears, mainly along the right edge. Very clean example, nicely framed. One of the best political posters of the 20th century with great crossover appeal.
