Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840
Babe Ruth wristwatch complete with original plastic ball case, retail display box, instruction sheet, and gold-colored registration card. This is a classic Ruth collectible and one rarely found presented together with many of its original accessories. The colorful watch, manufactured by the Exacta Time Corporation, features Ruth's image on the facing along with his facsimile signature. Included with the watch is the original plastic ball case, the original retail display box (featuring a photo of Ruth on two sides), the original "Instruction and Guarantee" sheet, and the registration card, which features a portrait photo of Ruth and "The Sportsman's Pledge." Also included is another instruction sheet from the E. Ingraham Company that does not appear to be original to the watch. The watch is not in working order, but is otherwise in Near Mint condition. The plastic ball case has a moderate crack and is in Very Good condition. The box (3 x 3 x 3 inches) is in Fair to Good condition, with numerous tears (many repaired by tape), abrasions, and a small portion of the front flap missing, but is still ideal for display with the watch. Both the instruction sheet (3 x 4 inches) and registration card (4 x 5 inches) are in Excellent condition overall.
