One Life: Babe Ruth image

Send a Message

This American baseball legend was an icon and media sensation. Before the commercialization of sports superstars became commonplace,

Ruth’s name and image fueled a marketing frenzy. His memorable persona is highlighted in a selection of historic prints, photographs and personal paraphernalia representing “the Babe” both as a Yankee slugger and a national celebrity. Historian James Barber is the curator of the show.
