This is very cool. It's a recording of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, audio only, doing alittle comedy.
It's funny, I've talked to kids in my own town right around baseball season each year about guys like Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. Some of the kids are as old as 11, and when I mention Babe Ruth, they'll say stuff, like "Wait... was he real?" With Lou, many are more unfamiliar with him, only that he died from a disease.
These Yankees were truly larger than life in their time, and for as long as I can remember, great card companies like Topps continue to bring Babe and Lou's history and legacy to kids and adults everywhere.
We've heard Babe speak in old tapes, but I don't remember every really hearing Lou Gehrig other than his final speech to Yankee Stadium. That was sad... this is comedy.
Anyway, if you have 5 minutes, check this out. And share it... keep the history of the Babe and Lou Gehrig going.
