"The Pride of the Yankees", 1949
Original vintage lobby card
Starring Gary Cooper and Babe Ruth
|1949 - "The Pride of
the Yankees". This was the first re-release of this baseball classic.
What makes this card particularly desirable is Babe Ruth (portraying himself) and
Gary Cooper togerther in a close-up. Also, the re-release was a year after Ruth's death
and the studio added Ruth's image into the border art which was not in the original 1942
release. This is a stunning card and the first we have ever seen!! A real treasure
for baseball, Babe Ruth and Gary Cooper fans!!
