In the early 1970s, the birthplace of Babe Ruth was almost demolished. Thankfully, the city of Baltimore and a group of citizens made sure that did not happen, and in 1973 the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum opened to the public.

Today, the museum houses an impressive collection of artifacts from the Bambino’s life, including some rare baseball cards and the earliest known signature of Ruth — from way back when he was still pitching in the schoolyard.
