            • Babe Ruth takes a picture of Lou Gehrig - April 12, 1932 - Philadelphia
              Funny to see the most photographed baseball player of the 20th century taking a picture of perhaps the most revered player of the 20th century.

              • Great Pictures of The Greatest! One correction if I may. In post 211 of the Babe watching the 1937 World Series, it should be 1934. 'Ol Diz and the Gashouse Gang, to the left, beat the Tigers that year. Also, I found a wonderful picture on Ebay a little while back of Babe Ruth and Dizzy Dean in June of 1948. Included is the label that was on the back of the photo. I read somewhere that Sportsman's Park was the last "out-of-town" public appearance of Ruth before his death. I wonder if this could be the same visit?

                  A good possibility that it was his last out of town visit at St. Louis if your speaking of New York as the town. I believe around July 13 he flew to Baltimore to make an appearance but was rained out. Doubtful in his condition that he did much traveling in that time period. So that June appearance with Dizzy could have been his last out of town since as we know he passed away August 16.

                          BTW, the pin on The Babe's jacket lapel is the 1931 Cardinals WS Press Pin.

                          • The Babe hands out his candy, "Ruth's Home Run Candy" - May 22, 1926.
                            Today, the wrappers can go for a few hundred dollars each. The box that they came in (as far as I've seen) have never come up for auction. In fact, this is the only picture where I can clearly see the design of the box.

                              If some candy manufacturer today were to get a hold of Babe Ruth's Home Run Candy's formula, and make it today, along with its original wrappers and box design, I bet they could make a lot of money. The novelty would be just so cool!

                              Someone should call that in to the candy makers. Put a million dollar idea in their ears.

                              Of course, knowing things as I do, the makers of Baby Ruth candy bar would probably sue. But they'd also lose.

                              • I've heard that Babe designed the bar himself and it consisted of pieces of hot dog and steak soaked in whiskey and beer, then covered in chocolate.
                                Probably wouldn't fly today...


                                Seriously, that would be a cool idea. Seems like retro candy is all the rage these days...Razzles, Teaberry gum, Chunkies. Ruth's Home Run Candy would fit right in.
                                Ruth also had a cigar company, resurrecting that would also fit in with present fads.
