CARD GIVEAWAY: 1974 TCMA Babe Ruth Postcards

[UPDATE: All 3 cards have been claimed! Keep an eye out for future giveaways.]

I'm pretty sure the TCMA founders culled these black-and-white photos from their own collections. This 6-count, postcard-sized set shows Babe in several outfits (player, coach, and civvies) and with contemporary players from the 1920s and 1930s.

Interestingly, none of these 3 cards put the Babe in pinstripes. The Dodger coaching uniform looks particularly unusual, considering his immutable image as the King of all Yankees.


Cards shown:

  • Babe and 1934 AL All-Stars
  • Babe and Tony Lazzeri (another former Yankee great)
  • Babe, manager Joe McCarthy, and Lou Gehrig


Interested in one of these cards? Add a comment to the post and let me know!

Those are some nice looking cards (esp the all star one). I'm interested. :)

Well, let's do this in order. Since the All-Stars is spoken for, I'd be interested in the Dodgers coaching jacket.

Thanks.

I like the last one with Joe McCarthy, and Lou Gehrig.
