Default 1920 Babe Ruth Headin' Home - 3 series

Added another 1920 Babe Ruth Headin' Home card to the collection so felt it might not be a bad thing to show a thread with the 3 different cataloged varieties. The first ones are very small at about 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" and the rest are a bit bigger than your typical candy cards. These are often faked/reprinted too. There is really no set order I am aware of as they were never cataloged by Burdick.

1st Series- Babe Ruth Headin' Home- small and generally had blank backs though stamps have been seen on some (as here).

2nd Series - Babe Ruth Headin' Home Theater Cards- larger at approx 1 3/4" x 3 3/4", *real photo card, have theaters printed or stamped on backs

3rd Series- Babe Ruth Headin' Home Tex Rickard Cards- larger at approx 1 3/4" x 3 3/4", *real photo card, have a Tex Rickard stamp on backs

Nice, Leon!

I never knew that there were theater cards. It almost makes you wonder: how many of these cards are in the possession of play/showbiz collectors, who have no about how popular vintage baseball cards are?

Awesome and impressive cards, Leon!

Wonderful cards, Leon! Actual photo cards of the Babe's first season with the Yanks, and first 50+ (54) homerun season. You make all of us drool over our keyboards.

Thanks for a great site,

Larry

Very neat, Leon.
Tangential to this thread is a still from the short Ruth did in 1931 called "Fancy Curves" which my inner fourteen year old acquired for its baseball and babelicious babe content.



Here is the short per YouTube. It's 8+ minutes long, basically hokey but some may find it enjoyable.
