Own a Piece of History: Babe Ruth 100th Anniversary Baseball

Celebrate the legendary career of Babe Ruth with this pre-loved commemorative baseball from 1995. This unique collectible honors the 100th birthday of baseball’s iconic slugger, George Herman “Babe” Ruth (1895-1948).

Authentic Tribute to a Baseball Legend:

This commemorative baseball showcases the name “Babe Ruth” alongside the dates of his life (1895-1995) on one side. The other side features the inscription “Commemorative Edition” just below a replica of Babe Ruth’s autograph. A brief biography of Babe Ruth is also printed on the ball, offering a glimpse into his remarkable achievements.

Display-ready with a Unique History:

This baseball is housed in a plastic display case for safekeeping and easy showcasing. The clear spherical top allows for a 360-degree view of the ball, while the gold plastic base reads, “California Egg Commission.” The base, manufactured by Sports Products Corp., a division of Laich Industries, is easy to open with a simple twist.

Pre-loved But Full of Character:

The baseball itself is in excellent condition, appearing virtually new. The plastic case, however, shows some signs of age, with minor scratches on the surface. Inside the clear sphere, you might find small raised marks, possibly remnants of dried glue or a similar substance. These imperfections add to the unique character of this pre-loved commemorative item.

More Than Just a Baseball:

When you buy this commemorative baseball from Father Joe’s Villages, you’re contributing to a worthy cause. Father Joe’s Villages provides vital services and programs that help people experiencing homelessness build a brighter future. Your purchase helps support its important mission.

Condition: Pre-owned, baseball like new, plastic display case shows age wear
