Rare and original vintage Babe Ruth "Home Run" candy bar wrapper featuring the Bambino, made by the George H. Ruth Candy Company. A short-lived candy product that the Babe backed in an attempt to combat the Curtiss Candy Co. and their "Baby Ruth" candy bars (Babe unsuccessfully sued the Curtiss company for the use of what he felt was an infringement of his name).
The Babe Ruth wax wrapper was virtually unknown to the hobby until the late 80s when a small find of 14 wrappers was unearthed.
