1934-35 Quaker Oats Babe Ruth Baseball Club Member Pins Overview

Ruth Quaker Membership Pin.JPG

Babe Ruth was involved in a number of promotions with Quaker Oats cereal. Ruth had at least two pins created by the company using his likeness. It is believed these pins were created in 1934 and 1935.

The 1934 pin was apparently distributed to members of the Babe Ruth Baseball Club. They state as such on the pin utilizing a black and white head shot of Ruth along with his replica signature.

The 1935 issue is a little different but somewhat similar. Another head shot of Ruth was used there, too. On that one, however, Babe Ruth’s name is at the top and the word ‘Champions’ is at the bottom.

Both pins are blank on the backs.

It is notable that a number of replica pins have sprung up over the years.
