Default Babe Ruth and the Canadian connection.

Great story, even if you are not CDN.
I also found out, Beehive, which I thought was strictly a hockey card promoter, if you will, was also involved in Baseball.

Not that I have looked for any, but I don't ever recall seeing anything baseball related from Beehive.

Great story, none the less, with facts I knew nothing about concerning Babe Ruth.

awesome read! Very well-written article. Thanks for sharing!

I just picked up a Canadian card of the Babe in last night's Goodwin auction! Great timing!

You're welcome guys, glad you enjoyed it.

I just seen this article/story/site in the comments section below my original story link.
I only went through it briefly/sporadically, but there are some more interested tidbits within.
