1921 Babe Ruth NY Yankees Game-Used Flannel Pants

Earliest Known Babe Ruth Pinstripes


These are without question the earliest Babe Ruth game-used pinstripe uniform article ever offered, therefore making them quite iconic as the man himself. Inside the rear waistband of these enormous pants is the “A.G. Spalding Bros” manufacturer’s tag. Directly below is the player’s name, “Ruth” embroidered in red chain-stitch script-style lettering in single-ply, indicating early 1920’s (In the mid-1920’s, the embroidery was done in a much thicker manner). The pants measure to a size “42” waist and are 38 inches in length. They were worn in The Babe’s “skinnier” days as Ruth is often visualized as robust, to say the least.
