      ARTHUR:
      Each evening, from December to December,
      Before you drift to sleep upon your cot,
      Think back on all the tales that you remember
      Of Camelot.
      Ask ev'ry person if he's heard the story,
      And tell it strong and clear if he has not,
      That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory
      Called Camelot.
      Camelot! Camelot!
      Now say it out with pride and joy!

      TOM:
      Camelot! Camelot!

      ARTHUR:
      Yes, Camelot, my boy!
      Where once it never rained till after sundown,
      By eight a.m. the morning fog had flown...
      Don't let it be forgot
      That once there was a spot
      For one brief shining moment that was known
      As Camelot.

        "Movie still from the 1927 silent film Babe Comes Home. The scene features Ruth signing his first professional contract with Baltimore as the characters of Jack Dunn and Ned Hanlon look on".

          "first All-Star Game took place in 1933 at Comiskey Park and was held in conjunction with the city's Century of Progress Exposition. Intended to be a one-time event, the game proved so popular that it quickly became an annual institution. Appropriately enough, the game's first home run came off the bat of Babe Ruth, with his two-run blast in the third inning providing the go ahead runs in an eventual 4-2 American League victory. A photo capturing Ruth and two of his American League teammates posing together prior to the start of that historic 1933 contest. Ruth is pictured standing on-field with Al Simmons of the White Sox and Charlie Gehringer of the Tigers". 7/6/33

            Nice rare pics of the Babe!

            Nice pics you got here! Hope you can still send more rare pictures of the Babe! Keep it up! By the way, do you have pics of the Babe as a player in St. Mary's Industrial School for Boys? If you have or if you found one, can you please post it here. Will appreciate it much.

              Excellent photos Jackie42!!

              Babe was a very dapper fella' indeed! He always was well dressed in public. I can appreciate that. Out of today's athletes, Michael Jordan is like that too. Like Ruth, when he is out in public, he is dressed to the nines in the finest thread.

                These seem to be the bowling ball and shoes of the Babe.

                  I believe those are on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown.

                        I thought about this for a while. I realized that Ruth was brought up in an orphanage. He probably was forced to use his right hand to write because using the left hand was the sign of the devil

                              There's an excellent book called something like "Babe; A Life in Words and Pictures" that features many of these photos. I recommend it highly. Many, many wonderful pictures of Babe visiting orphanages, barnstorming, horsing around...also a few very frank photos with his first wife that Ruth probably would have torn up if he had the chance.
