Circa 1948 Babe Ruth Figural Desk Clock
Starting Bid - $800.00 , Sold For - $3,818.75
Classic Babe Ruth figural electric desk clock produced by the Abbotwares company features a bust of Ruth between two baseballs, on which are recorded his single-season and lifetime home run records, respectively. This clock was the top prize offered by a baseball punch board game, circa 1948, and was probably available for sale as well. The clock is in working order. High quality, very substantial, and ideal for display, with a striking art deco-style base. Rarely found in such a fine state of preservation. This is an outstanding example of one of baseball collecting's premier Babe Ruth display pieces. Excellent to Mint condition. Height: 10 inches. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
