8 First Day of Issue Envelopes Featuring the Babe Ruth 20-Cent Stamp.







      
Lot 353. 8 First Day of Issue Envelopes Featuring the Babe Ruth 20-Cent Stamp. The U.S. Postal Service issued the Babe Ruth stamp on July 6, 1983, in Chicago. The date marks the 50th anniversary of the first Baseball All-Star game. Ruth contributed a two-run home run as the American League defeated the National, 4-2, at Comiskey Park in Chicago. All eight of the 6 ½” x 3 5/8” envelopes have a July 6, 1983 Chicago postmark. There are four different envelopes, all with the Ruth stamp, among the eight. Three identified as “Double Play Cards-1” have an artist’s portrait of Ruth and a representation of a 1935 Ruth promotional offer from Quaker Oats. Two are “Double Play Cards-2” with a photo of Ruth pitching for the Boston Red Sox and noting that he “smashed an unprecedented 29 home runs” that season. Two more are “Double Play Cards-3” reproducing the front cover of the April 20, 1935 “Literary Digest,” which presents Ruth as a batter. One envelope is from a different series, J:M, and marked as “3 of 10.” Below a photo of Ruth batting, it identifies him as “The Red Sox Home Run king who astonished the baseball world by clouting twenty-nine homers in 1919.” Very nice Ruth collection. Minimum Bid $20.
