About This Item

New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., Inc, 1948. First edition of Ruth's autobiography. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated, pictorial endpapers. Boldly signed by Babe Ruth on the half-title page. Fine in the original dust jacket with some wear and tear. As told to Bob Considine. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Uncommon signed as Ruth passed away in the year of publication. The story of the greatest baseball player who ever lived, told in his own words, spans his life and includes the highs and lows, friendships, loves, and feuds, and career milestones of the man who symbolizes America's favorite game.
