During the peak period of the 1920s Babe Ruth was the most popular and recognizable person in the United States, and perhaps the world. When Ruth became attached to super agent Christy Walsh, the Ruth name and likeness began to appear on a multitude of products. Among Babe Ruth's more unusual endorsements was the brand of underwear which bore his name. The colorful box, which measures 9-3/4 x 12-3/4 x 2-3/4 inches features Ruth's full-color smiling portrait on the cover crossing collecting genres, the Ruth underwear boxes, with their huge visual appeal, have been popular with baseball and advertising collectors alike. Offered is an example of this very striking box, in extremely high-grade condition considering the intended role for which the box was produced. This box displays all tight corners and seams, with no splits, tears or extensive fraying, and only exhibits very light peripheral edge wear.

Overall conservatively graded Excellent condition. A dominant piece in any collectors den!
