(LOT 239)
1915 Boston Red Sox Fatima Tobacco Advertisement with Rookie Babe Ruth

Produced just prior to the 1915 World Series pitting the Red Sox against the Philadelphia Phillies, the offered 19-3/4" x 13-1/4" window advertisement display features the rookie Babe Ruth and his Boston mates after going 101-50 with Ruth pitching to an 18-8 record in 32 starts. The Red Sox beat the Phillies in five games, despite Ruth never taking the mound. The Boston Red Sox team photo remains clear and vivid for a 106-year-old piece, including full rich colors emanating from the cigarette pack. Edge and corners appear relatively sharp; light center crease as issued with no other apparent defects on the front. An EX-MT technical assessment were it not for the slight crease.

MIN BID $1,000
