Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", Babe Ruth began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand today. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. He was one of the first five inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.

This nicely framed Highland Mint piece features a cut section from a 1916-1920 H&B Babe Ruth game used bat along with a photo of Ruth, a Yankees collector's pin, and a 24Kt gold overlay medallion. This piece measures roughly 16" x 18" including the frame.

Also included is an 11"x14" framed photo featuring Ruth signing hundreds of baseballs. The piece includes a laser engraved replica of Babe Ruth's signature.
