This nearly eight decade collectible features "Babe Ruth" in a portrait pose on the obverse of this pocket watch. Eleven baseball images adorn the obverse of this collectible with a second-hand nestled within a baseball; the reverse is blank. The front lens is loose, however it does not impair the collectible. As a point of reference on value, Goldin Auctions has sold similar styles of "Ruth"-themed watches for more than $1,000 in their recent 2020 auctions.

Ruth’s Major League Baseball career spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter still stands as of 2019. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
