The Sultan of Swat is Revealed
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.
