i went to card shop last month and forgot to post this on here. the owner of the shop was in the back with a regular at the shop i think and he came out with a bat storage case and the bat was a BABE RUTH BAT FROM THE 1920'S AND HE SAID THAT IT WAS ONLY 1/25?? EVER MADE FOR HIM BY LOUISVILLE SLUGGER OF THAT SAME TYPE. I THOUGHT THAT THAT IS AMAZING PERSONALLY. WHEN I GOT HOME I LOOKED UP SIMILAR BATS FROM RUTH ON EBAY AND THEY WERE ON THERE FOR LIKE $850,000!! ALSO SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT IT IS THAT IT WAS LIKE A 45 OZ 31 IN BAT WHICH IS AMAZING TO ME.
let me know what you think about it should have taken pics with phone when i was there

yea it was kinda funny because the guy was wearing this big padded gloves so he doesn't deform it in any possible way

im almost positive it has his name enscripted in it and it is worn pretty good. i doubt he would sell, but he is pretty old so hey, maybe i could get it?
