For the Babe Ruth collector who has it all, we present this group of (4) oversized records. These mammoth 16” diameter discs are labeled as follows: “WOR, Electrical Transcription, Lateral 33-1/3-Start Outside” followed by “The Adventures of Babe Ruth” along with serial numbers and program editions and dates from the year 1949. Little is known about these behemoth recordings, but in theory they are likely rebroadcasts of the Babe’s 1934 radio program that was aired under the “Adventures of Babe Ruth” title, that were aired following his 1948 demise. All (4) records are recorded on one side only and present in excellent condition with little if any wear on the recording grooves. The plain brown paper sleeves show varying degrees of moderate wear including rips and tears, but all remain intact. One sleeve is printed with a “Soundcraft, Instantaneous Recording Discs” logo and another sleeve is printed with “Audiodiscs, Audio Devices, Inc. 444 Madison Avenue, New York 22 N.Y,”, while the other two sleeves are blank. The discs are numbered as programs #3 dated 5/22/49, #4 dated 5/31/49, #5 dated 5/27/49 and #7 dated 6/21/49 and have us longing for a turntable large enough to play them.
