1936 Babe Ruth’s Baseball Game Cards Overview

Babe Ruth 1936 Milton Bradley cardThese cards were part of a game produced by Milton Bradley in 1936 featuring the legendary Babe Ruth. Ruth was no longer an active major league player, having retired after the 1935 season. But his name still carried plenty of weight and he headlined this board game.

The game included a playing board and wooden pieces to serve as de facto baserunners. 85 cards were included with the board game and were used to dictate play.

The box is still a collector’s item to this day. It features the ‘Babe Ruth’s Baseball Game’ name in large red letters at the top as well as a large cartoon drawing of a batter and catcher. A real picture of Ruth himself was also included as was his replica signature.
