Great Babe Ruth cover, and from What A Year! Written before the 1927 season started, who could have imagined what the Sultan of Swat would accomplish that year. He led the Yankees to 110 regular season wins and a 4-0 World Series win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Ruth swated a record 60 homers (topping his own record of 59), drove in 165 runs and hit .356. The cover shows his follow through on his swing, and the photo's caption discusses Ruth's salary, $70,000 a year for three years, enormous money at the time. Cover is framed at 15"x20.5".
