Long overshadowed by the legendary T206 Honus Wagner and 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie, Babe Ruth's 1916 M101-4 Sporting News rookie card is finally receiving the attention it deserves. This particular one is a fine example, rated a Good-Very Good 2.5 by Beckett Grading Services. Recently discovered inside an antique piano as it was moved, it has a blank back, shows the Bambino as a lefty pitcher for the Red Sox, and is ready for display as the crown jewel of any memorabilia collection.
A tribute to the Group B era in motorsports — which spanned from 1982-1986 — this watch utilizes the same tech and materials in use at the time, including bi-metallic case construction. A Miyota 9015 automatic movement is housed within a lightweight 39mm titanium capsule case composed of two parts, which is held to the wrist via a seamlessly-integrated, matte-finish stainless steel bracelet. The high-contrast "Night Stage" dial — inspired by the tachometer of the Lancia Rally 037 — features green luminous hands and markers along with a grid design that helps complete the 80's vibe. Each timepiece comes in an aluminum collectors box with number plaque.
