Babe Ruth’s first contract with the Boston Red Sox is alive and well on plate glass negatives, offered on eBay this week. 90 years later, it’s an educational lot of baseball memorabilia.
It’s history on a lot of different fronts. Baseball, certainly. But also a piece from a time before computer files, copiers and scanners.
Babe Ruth’s first contract has been lost to time, but the negatives from photographs taken of the pact between the Babe and the Boston Red Sox live on. A seller offered the very cool 4-piece set on eBay this week and sold them (we think) for $15,000.
