1933. Item #028190
This special half-price ticket was produced in cooperation with the Curtiss Candy Company that produced the Baby Ruth Candy bar. The verso of the card shows the Baby Ruth advertisement with the logo of the American Medical Association which announces Accepted. Although the company once said the name was based on a family baby named Ruth, it became evident that it was an attempt to capitalize on the name of Babe Ruth. By 1933 the Babe was in the nadir of his career, but the Six-Day races were exciting with steep banks and strict competition from all over the world. The race was won by Ewald Wissel of Germany and Jimmy Walthour before 14,000 fans.
