1948 Babe Ruth Wristwatch with Original Box

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,350

This high-grade Babe Ruth watch collection includes the watch, the ball-shaped case, the retail box, the instruction sheet, and the gold-colored registration card. The watch does not appear to be in working order; otherwise both it and the case are in extraordinary Mint condition. The lid to the box (3 x 3 x 3 inches) became detached at some point and has been reattached by means of clear tape. Aside from the tape repair and some minor tears and creases to the lid, the remainder of the box is in Excellent condition overall. It should be noted that many of the Babe Ruth watches found today do not include the original box, and when the box is present it is normally in Poor to Fair condition. The instruction sheet is in Very Good condition. A portion of the registration card (the small instruction panel advising owners to detach the Sportsman’s Pledge card) is neatly detached along the perforation; otherwise the card is in Very Good to Excellent condition. This is an outstanding example of one of the most popular and classic of all Ruth collectibles, accompanied by all of the materials which originally came with it. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $2,350
