12 Magazine Pages from the 1920s-30s Focusing on Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig or Both.

Lot 214. 12 Magazine Pages from the 1920s-30s Focusing on Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig or Both. Four pages from an undated issue of “The American Magazine” present 11 posed photos of Ruth in an article titled “The Babe Shows How.” Ruth is the subject of two pages and an illustration in an incomplete two-page article from the March 19, 1927 “Literary Digest.” He receives plenty of coverage – and Gehrig is mentioned – in the same magazine’s Oct. 12, 1929 issue in an article that focuses on New York Yankees manager Miller Huggins – “Taps for Huggins: A Great Little Bear-Tamer.” A caption below a photo of the two future Hall of Fame members in the four-page article reports “The Hatchet Buried, Friendship Was Born.” Ruth also is in an advertisement (“The American Magazine, Feb. 1933) for Ingram’s Shaving Cream with New York columnist Bill Corum. An ad featuring Gehrig promotes Williams Luxury Shaving Cream (“Time,” Sept. 6, 1937). And in an ad for Gillette (“Time,” July 27, 1936), Gehrig nominates “the Gillette Blade for all-time Clean-up King.” The pages are generally ex or better; some have an uneven edge or minor edge chips or tears. Winning Bid $20.
