Babe Ruth Spikes

These spikes were worn by Babe Ruth during his career and later donated to the Museum by Ruth himself, will undergo much needed conservation work, thanks to a generous donation from Debra J. Williams.

Interestingly the spikes were the first item accessioned by the Museum in 1939, the same year that Ruth was formally inducted at the first Induction Ceremony.
