Description

Offered is a Babe Ruth 13x16 advertisement for Jacob Schmidt Brewing. Although the date is speculative, this print entitled ”The Immortal Babe: Idol of Millions” was probably released in the 1920s-1930s. The St. Paul, Minnesota based brewery company ceased production in 1955. The vintage graphic has survived the decades quite well and depicts a pencil-drawn “Bambino” following through on his patented swing. This artwork is only detracted by an unobtrusive water stain and a light contusion on the upper right portion of the graphic. Despite those negligible flaws, this is truly a fine artifact with a proud display appeal.
