Circa 1935 Babe Ruth Underwear Box

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $300

Among Babe Ruth's more unusual endorsements was the brand of underwear that bore his name. The colorful box in which underwear was sold features Ruth's portrait and has always been extremely popular with baseball and general-advertising collectors alike. The box lid displays only moderate wear; however, the bottom portion (underside) of the box is heavily stained, obscuring the original store label. While technically in Good to Very Good condition overall, nearly all of the major flaws are relegated to the base and the box presents magnificently as Excellent (far nicer than normally seen!) when properly displayed. Dimensions: 9.75 x 9.75 x 2 inches. SOLD FOR $300
