Picked up this neat hat, but not sure if it's Red Sox year or Yankee years related, or both.

2 different auction houses give the 2 differing time frames. I can only find these 2 through searching see below), anyone else seen another?, any ideas, guesses?

For sale to Ruth, Yankee or Sox fan if interested or if u want to consign, as most of u know I lack the patience to consign so feel free to make a few bucks if you do have the patience. Or makes a VERY neat addition to any Ruth, Sox or Yankee collection!!!!

Hi Paul, Interesting piece. This listing has the same "Custom Made" straw hat, but with a different band, description as 1920s vaudeville hat. Did Ruth have a vaudeville act entitled "Swing it Babe"? I believe Ruth was on the circuit a number of times, but do not know the name of any acts off-hand. If so, would think this would be equally great, the added info might interest the Ruth movie and barnstorming collectors. Would present great with The Babe Comes Home, Bustin Babes, and others. movies, barnstorming, vaudeville. Listing:

Here's Babe applying his own make up for the tour. Now that's the manly way to go about it. Apply your own makeup :eek:
