Wow!!!! All truly awesome pieces.

Given the scarcity of these old papers...since most were thrown away, I ageee that there should absolutely be a market value. They are fascinating and make really great displays.

Keep um coming.

The Babe Signs 1 year contract for $75K - March 16, 1932. At the time Ruth was the highest paid player in the history of baseball. Also, his salary was the same as the president of the U.S. whose salary was also $75K. Ruth actually took a $5K cut from his asking salary of $80K. It was estimated at the time that Ruth had been paid more than $750K as a baseball player.

I'm new to this group and and already enjoying all the posts and photos!!

I have been collecting vintage Baseball paper (Newspapers and vintage Magazine Ads pre 1950) items for about 20 years now and find them really enjoyable and educational.

The collectable market for these types of items has increased as has the prices in the last year or so. The Ruth items probably are the most popular right now and for items in better condition you will find stiff competition on ebay.

As of this time I have about 25 of my top pieces framed and ready to grace the walls of one of my bedrooms!! I will post a couple of photos of my favorites in the next couple of days.

Love all those old papers shown above. Fragile and rare to survive the test of time. Very under valued (for now) IMO, like postcards were 10 years ago. Here is some more eye candy!

Always enjoy the historical look and feel of these old newspapers. Also, these papers can be used as great companion items and really enhance the original piece be it a card,photo, ticket etc.
