Since so much of baseball happened before the television age, it's worth checking out the home movie footage of Babe Ruth in this NY Times article. The at-bat is interesting, although teeny and distant, but there's also some rare footage of Ruth playing in the outfield, where he spent more than 2,200 games.
Be honest with us. Are there baseball cards of Babe Ruth that you like? We're ashamed to admit we are overcome with boredom whenever we hear his name in the realm of cardboard. It must reveal some failing in us as baseball fans? Or baseball history buffs? So we don't care for many Ruth cards...except this Goudey:
Also, please vote in the poll at right. You can vote up to twice, because there are two questions to which we'd like to know your responses. One is where you get your cards; the other is, IF you had a card shop near you, would you be loyal to it if the prices were competitive? Is that the key?
Or is there just no hope for brick and mortar anymore?
