Up for auction is a Vintage COKE COLA POSTER OF BABE RUTH!!! I can't believe I found this in my uncle's barn. This was rolled up in a wrapping paper roll. And I was fixing to throw it out, untill I looked down and seen something in it. I'm so glad I did. This has different pictures of the Babe on this poster. Now the paper it's turning yellow and real fragile. But at the bottom of this poster it reads Babe Ruth born on Feb 6, 1895 George Herman (Babe) Ruth, be came the most colorful and popular player in baseball history. During his career from 1914-1935 he set more than 50 records. And it goes on and on. But as you can tell by the pictures t is some tore parts up top. BUT THIS IS STILL A REALLY GREAT FIND! It also states Baseball Greats: An original poster series from THE COKE COLA COMPANY 3 OF 4. Just maybe my uncle has the others don't know but I will keep looking. This would be great for a coke cola collector or a baseball fan.

My uncle has passed away now, and i'm just trying to get all his loose ends tied up. He used to say he's getting old and times are changing and he is having to really down size. He stated that the cemetery won't let him take anything with him unless it can fit in his pocket. He's so funny, so he told me to bury him in his coverall's (lots of pockets) he states he wants his 6 pk an his tobacco and book that has Jane Mansfield. I asked him I said don't you want a picture of aunt Sue or some of the kids he started laughing an stated no he know's what we look like and he wants to forget it. I told the ole coot well wait till you see aunt Sue up t , she'll take that magazine away from you he stated na she's have to run. And she never liked to run that's how come I got her. If you knew my uncle you would be laughing also.
