Ken’s Korner: Babe Ruth’s ‘34 ‘Tour of Japan’ uniform displayed – The Journal of Antiques and Collectibles – January 2006
A uniform that Babe Ruth wore in 1934 during a U.S. All-Star Tour of Japan went on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum in Louisville, Ky. The uniform was shown for only two days — November 11 and 12 — to coincide with an auction of baseball memorabilia held by Hunt Auctions, Inc., of Exton, Pa. Hunt had acquired the uniform on behalf of a collector for $771,000. It was publicly unveiled for the first time in 70 years. Ruth wore it during a pre-World War II tour of the Pacific.
