Format: Hardcover
This collection of Babe Ruth memories, compliments of Babe's daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens, is a wonderul tribute to the game's greatest player. It's refreshing to read a piece of baseball lore which deals strictly with the incredible accomplishments of this legendary player, leaving the present-day negativity behind.

For those, like myself, who love the game in its purest form, this walk down memory lane is like taking a vacation to baseball paradise.

What a steal! This loving tribute to the greatest baseball of all time (and that's objective, since I'm a lifelong Cardinals fan) is a must-have for anyone who loves the history. The photographs and memorabilia are worth the full price of the book alone. These photos are on glossy, thick pages and and are so sharp you'd think they were taken yesterday.

Yeah, the "memorabilia" are just reproductions, but so what? It's great fun to examine scorecards from a few World Series games, look at various tickets to the games, see what an old-time contract looks like, have an autographed team picture or two, etc. - Great stuff!

Ruth was a rough character but the pictures in here with the Bambino and family and admiring young fans are just fantastic. He was a simple, yet complex man, if that makes sense.

This book is well worth the $30 retail price but it's going for one-third of that here and one-third of that at Barnes & Noble. Considering all you get, and the classy presentation, this is one of the better "bargain books" you'll ever see.

I purchased this book for my 8 year old grandson. He just loves it. If you have a child that wants to know about Babe Ruth, this is the book to get. The memorabilia in this book is just amazing. I am waiting for him to finish with it so I can read the story of his life.A great book
