À propos de l'objet

1915 Boston Red Sox with Rookie Babe Ruth Real Photo Postcard PSA EX+ 5.5. He was just twenty years old at the time this postcard was produced, and 710 home runs away from the career total that would stand for nearly four decades after his retirement. Though Babe Ruth's remarkable slugging skills were a novelty, to be sure, it was the eighteen-and-eight pitching record recorded during this official rookie season of 1915 that made the youngster a fan favorite at Fenway. Spectacular pitching, in fact, was the pathway to the pennant for this Red Sox team, with all five starters recording a winning percentage of .682 or better, and an earned run average of 2.44 or lower. In the Babe's greatest baseball foil, and Ty Cobb's talented Tigers team, the Red Sox found their strongest contender for the American League flag, but Boston earned a Fall Classic appearance by a two and a half game margin over the 100-victory Detroit squad. It was Ruth himself who earned the team's 101st win in the bottom half of an October 6th doubleheader to clinch the pennant. The World Series would launch two days later at the Baker Bowl, home park of the National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies. We suspect that this gorgeous real photo postcard greeted hometown fans at Braves Field for the third and fourth games of the World Series, the National League park borrowed due to a seating capacity superior to the newly-constructed Fenway Park. Text at the bottom edge of the team image suggests production prior to the team's World Championship realization, reading, "The Boston Red Sox--American League Champions--Season 1915." Each Red Sox player is pictured in the classic team shot, and identified with surname and position in bold printed text. We find Ruth at center of the back row. The postcard survives in truly remarkable condition, free of the "silvering" common to silver gelatin photography, and lacking the handwriting typical of most postcards from the era. Minor edge and corner wear accounts for the entirety of condition caveats, leaving this specimen unequalled and unbeaten on the PSA population chart. Dimensions 3.5x5.5". Finest known example of this key Ruth rookie card. {br}{p}{div="center"} {iframe width="450" height="259" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bXLzWVdtLns?wmode=transparent" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen}{/iframe}{br /} {/div}{/p}
