"Millions of words have been written about Babe Ruth since he first donned a major league uniform in 1914, but this is the first time the Babe himself has told the incredible story of his sensational career." Ruth signatures from 1948 are quite scarce, as he was in very poor health for much of that year and ultimately died on August 16th. "First Edition" stated on copyright page. Smith 18833. Grobani 8-19. Interior clean and fine; minor wear to corners and ends of slightly toned spine; chipping to edges of very scarce original dust jacket.
