The Sultan of Swat is Revealed

Babeesheet

George Herman Ruth is one of my favorite historical baseball players.  I'm not a Yankees fan...just a fan of the history of the national pastime.  I was glad to hear that Upper Deck would be producing an All-Star Vinyl figure based on The Babe.  This figure will be the first in the "Best of the Bronx" series.  The colorized sculpt above is by illustrator Scot Terry. 

I wish we had a closer look at the figure's face.  It seems like his chin might be a little too chiseled (not the rounded face we are used to) and I'm hoping that his nose and mouth are accurate.  And if they are going for a realistic look, UD might want to drop the NY logo from the front of Ruth's jersey...he never wore the famous insignia on his jersey.
