1933 Blue Bird Grape Soda Babe Ruth Overview

1933 Blue Bird Soda Ruth Back33BB Soda Ruth33 Blue Bird Soda RuthThe 1933 Blue Bird Grape Soda premiums are small post-card like photographs of Yankees slugger Babe Ruth. Two different pictures were offered – one showing Ruth’s swing from the front and another showing him from the side.

Backs of the photographs included a special redemption offer for consumers as well as a brief advertisement for Blue Bird Soda, which was printed as ‘Let’s Drink Blue Bird – More Delicious than Grape Juice.’

The promotion allowed consumers to send in 29 Blue Bird Soda bottle caps and a small fee to obtain either a Babe Ruth glove ($1.29) or an official league ball from Spalding ($.89).

The cards were not classified by Jefferson Burdick in his American Card Catalog with the rest of the J-Cards (soda issues).
