Rare 1928 Babe Ruth Shonen Kulubu Japanese Postcard. PSA 7 Top Pop
Babe Ruth Japanese Postcard
As soon as Aaron Judge belted his 61st home run the other night, news of the iconic blast traveled around the world INSTANTLY. International baseball fans around the world were aware of the homer before Judge crossed home plate thanks to social media and our incredible ability to share information in real-time. Obviously in 1928 with a lack of technology, news didn’t travel nearly as fast as it does today, but that didn’t stop the legend of Babe Ruth from circulating globally. Yes, America’s hero was an international superstar even in the early 1900’s… that’s how special he was!
Offered here the extremely rare, seldom seen 1928 Shonen Kulubu Japanese Post card of New York Yankee icon Babe Ruth! The postcard is a nicely colorized image from the first base dugout of Ruth taking a swing, and features Japanese writing on the right side. The reverse is perfectly clean with no writings or markings and the overall condition of the postcard is astounding! Graded overall 7 by PSA, there are no examples graded higher according to PSA’s population report.
It's amazing to us that news of Ruth’s prowess at the plate travelled all the way to Japan, even in the 1920’s. Yes, baseball was and is America’s pastime, but Ruth was that big, literally and figuratively!
