Honoring the “Sultan of Swat” and His Remarkable Baseball Career
The left side of the receiver captures Babe Ruth swinging the bat, framed by the baseball diamond which was his kingdom. His name is featured along with the title, “The Sultan of Swat.” Elaborate nickel scrollwork surrounds the images on both sides.
Right side of the receiver features the Babe admiring a towering home run, plus the Babe tipping his cap to his legion of fans. Babe loved baseball and his life story says, “Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world,” and this quote is captured on the Tribute.
The Tribute’s walnut stocks are laser-carved on both sides with an image of Babe holding a bat on the shoulder stock, and a baseball flying past the name of Babe Ruth on the forearm. The barrel bands, lever, sight and end cap are all polished and decorated in 24-karat gold. The lever is etched with a decorative nickel scroll to complement the artwork on the receiver.
America Remembers invites you to join us in celebrating the “Golden Age of American Baseball” with the Babe Ruth Tribute, a genuine working Model 94 rifle in .30-30 caliber. Introduced the year before the birth of the “Bambino” in 1895, the Winchester is decorated and embellished in 24-karat gold and nickel by craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers to capture the Hall of Famer doing what he did best – thrilling his fans with mammoth home runs. Officially authorized by the family of Babe Ruth, the Tribute salutes the slugger’s legendary career. During the winters of his remarkable career, Babe Ruth traveled south to hunt and fish. He once stalked a wild turkey in Georgia for seven hours before he could get the perfect shot! He enjoyed hunting game and fowl, and hunted often with teammates and sportswriters.
