In an effort to promote Babe Ruth as well as other leading baseball players from the 1920s, Christy Walsh, Ruth’s super-agent, developed the All-America Board of Baseball. These ornate certificates were issued to the most deserving players in professional baseball each year with Ruth's signature, along with those of a board of sports writers and his agent Christy Walsh until Ruth's death in 1948. Offered here is the 1928 certificate awarded to Ruth's teammate Waite Hoyt. This is truly one of the finest examples ever offered, while most examples have not withstood the test of time, this particular example remains like new with just a faint horizontal fold and wear to the foil seal leaving the only hints that this piece was isssued nearly 90 years ago! This certificate has been in a private collection for nearly 20 years and has been archivally framed and triple matted behind museum quality glass to an overall size of 22" x 24". The bold "George Herman Ruth" full name signature projects at a bold NM-MT or better level. Don't miss out on your chance to own a piece of baseball history.
