Babe Ruth & Cigars


Babe Ruth, also known as "The Sultan of Swat," was a legendary baseball player who was known not only for his prowess on the field but also for his love of cigars. Ruth was often seen smoking cigars, both on and off the field, and was known to enjoy a good smoke after a game.

Ruth's love of cigars was so well-known that he even endorsed a brand of cigars, called "Babe Ruth's Own," in the 1930s. The cigars were made by a company called H.J. Slama Co. and featured Ruth's image on the box.

In addition to his love of cigars, Ruth was also known for his love of food and drink, often indulging in rich foods and alcohol. Despite his indulgences, Ruth remained one of the greatest baseball players of all time, setting numerous records during his career, including the record for most home runs in a season, which stood for over 30 years.

Ruth's legacy as both a baseball player and a cigar aficionado has endured long after his death, with many fans and cigar enthusiasts still enjoying a good smoke in his honor.
