The Great Bambino was the cover athlete for SPORT Magazine's May 1948 issue. Arguably baseball's greatest legend, Babe Ruth led the league in home runs an astonishing 12 times in racking up seven World Series Titles during his 22-year career. In 1936, Ruth was elected as a part of the first five members of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

SPORT Magazine, which ran from 1946 to 2000, celebrated what its editors accurately anticipated would be the coming explosion of interest in professional and amateur sport in post-war North America.
