1927-1928 Babe Ruth Reach Baseball-Glove Pamphlet

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $120

Rare Reach eight-page promotional pamphlet advertising the company's line of Babe Ruth-model gloves. The novel design of the pamphlet (which makes it ideal for display) features a silhouette portrait illustration of Ruth on the front cover, with both the covers and interior pages die-cut to match the outline of the illustration. Ruth's ringing endorsement of Reach gloves appears on the first page, while the remaining pages feature illustrations and descriptions of six different Ruth-model gloves, including catcher's mitts. Although the pamphlet is not dated, the type of Reach official American League baseball advertised on the interior back cover was only produced in 1927 and 1928, thereby narrowly defining its dating to that two-year span. The advertising pamphlet (3.25 x 6 inches) displays a small one-inch tear on the cover that affects a few interior pages, plus a few small edge tears. A few vintage pencil notations appear on the reverse, including what appears to be the name of a former owner and the the date "Sept. 1930." In Very Good condition overall. SOLD FOR $120
