A National Treasure, Babe Ruth’s 1924 Home Run Bat, Going to Auction

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — In 1924 Babe Ruth hit his first home run of the season off a pitch thrown by Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson.  That Home Run Bat was signed at the end of the game and presented to high school senior Phil Grossman.

Grossman was the winner of a highly publicized year-long batting contest sponsored by the LA Herald.  The winner received the exact bat used by “The Babe” to hit the first home run of the 1924 season.

The image of Ruth signing this 1924 Home Run Bat (shown here) is the only known image of Ruth autographing any bat in uniform.  In addition to the photograph of Ruth signing the bat, there is a documented photo of Ruth crossing home plate after hitting the home run off Johnson.

There are dozens of pictures and articles in a scrapbook assembled by recipient Grossman.  This priceless scrapbook is included with the bat at auction.

Grossman treasured the Babe Ruth Bat until his death in 1986. The bat then became the property of Grossman’s nephew, Mike Robinson.  Sadly, Robinson had the bat and scrapbook stolen in 1989 but after a 29-year search, the bat was recently located and returned to Robinson.

The importance of both Babe Ruth and Walter Johnson to baseball cannot be overstated.  Both men were among the first six baseball players to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Babe Ruth’s memorabilia is considered the “King of Collectibles.”  Seven (7) of the top fifteen (15) highest priced sports memorabilia items ever sold belonged to Babe Ruth.

The highest price ever paid for any piece of sports memorabilia was Babe Ruth’s 1920 jersey, which sold at auction in 2012 for $4,415,000.

This bat is not only the most chronicled piece of sports memorabilia of all time, it also has the verification of the industry’s top experts, receiving a GU10, the highest rating possible.

Although the reserve/opening bid for this bat is $3,000,000, collectors are already speculating that this Babe Ruth 1924 Home Run Bat will sell for more than the 1920 Babe Ruth jersey, making it the most valuable piece of sports memorabilia of all time.

‫ثروة وطنية، مضرب بيب روث من فوزه في لعبة البيسبول العام 1924، يعرض في المزاد العلني

ملووكي، 8 شهر نوفمبر ، 2018/ بي آر نيوزواير / — في العام 1924 سجل بيب روث هدفه الأول في موسم البيسبول من ضربة تلقاها من الضارب المشهور وولتر جونسون. وقد تم توقيع مضرب بيب روث ذاك في نهاية اللعبة وقدم لطالب المرحلة الثانوية حينها فيل غروسمان.

وكان غروسمان الفائز في مسابقة ضربات البيسبول التي اشتهرت جدا في ذلك العام  لمدة عام برعاية أل أيه هيرالد. وفاز الفائز في الموسم حينها بالمضرب نفسه الذي استخدمه “بيب” ليسجل به هدفه الأول الذي فاز به في موسم اللعبة للعام 1924.https://prnewswire2-a.akamaihd.net/p/1893751/sp/189375100/thumbnail/entry_id/1_9nr0lbu8/def_height/400/def_width/400/version/100011/type/1

صورة روث وهو يوقع مضرب فوزه بالموسم في العام 1924 (كما هو موضح هنا) هي الصورة الوحيدة المعروفة لروث التي يوقع بها مضربه بالزي الرسمي للعبة.  بالإضافة إلى صورة روث وهو يوقع المضرب، هناك صورة موثقة لروث وهو يتجاوز القاعدة الأخيرة في اللعبة بعد أن سجل الهدف بالضربة التي أوصلها إليه جونسون.

وهناك العشرات من الصور والمقالات في سجل قصاصات الصحف التي جمعها المستلم غروسمان لفوز روث. وسيتم تضمين هذا القصاصات التي لا تقدر بثمن مع المضرب في المزاد.

وكان غروسمان قد احتفظ بمضرب بيب  روث حتى وفاته في العام 1986. وأصبح المضرب بعدها ملك ابن شقيق غروسمان، مايك روبنسون. وللأسف، تمت سرقة المضرب وسجلات القصاصات من روبنسون في العام 1989 ولكن بعد 29 عاما من البحث، تم العثور على المضرب والقصاصات في الآونة الأخيرة وأعيدا إلى روبنسون.

لا يمكن المبالغة في أهمية كل من بيب روث وولتر جونسون في تاريخ لعبة البيسبول. فكلا الرجلين كانا من بين أول ستة لاعبين في البيسبول دخلوا قاعة مشاهير البيسبول.

تعتبر تذكارات روث “ملكة المقتنيات. ستة (6) من أفضل خمسة عشر (15) من التذكارات الرياضية ذات الأسعار الأعلى التي تم بيعها تتبع بيب روث.
وكان أعلى سعر تم دفعه لشراء أي قطعة من التذكارات الرياضية هو قميص  بيب روث في العام 1929، الذي بيع في مزاد العام 2012 مقابل 4،415،000 مليون دولار.
هذا المضرب ليس فقط أكثر قطعة تذكارية رياضية توثيقا في كل العصور، ولكنه حاصل على تحقق كبار خبراء الصناعة، وهو حاصل على ترتيب  GU10، وهي أعلى تصنيف ممكن.

على الرغم من أن عرض السعر الإفتتاحي / الإفتراضي لهذا المضرب هو 3،000،000 دولار، إلا أن جامعي التذكارات يتوقعون بالفعل أن يبيع مضرب بيب روث في فوزه في العام 1924 بأكثر مما بيع به قميص بيب روث للعام 1920، مما يجعله أغلى قطعة تذكارات رياضية في كل العصور.

Kaleido Launches Blockchain Marketplace with Plug-and-Play Services and Solution Partnership Program

Blockchain platform leader Kaleido, in collaboration with ConsenSys and Amazon Web Services, is launching the first full-stack platform with a marketplace of plug-and-play services, integrations and partner software to accelerate enterprise blockchain projects from proof-of-concepts to live production business networks.

LISBON, Portugal, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Web Summit — Kaleido, a ConsenSys company, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services, is helping enterprises break through the proof-of-concept stage to live production blockchain networks with the announcement of its next major step forward. The newly launched Kaleido Marketplace extends its Blockchain Business Cloud to become the first full-stack enterprise platform available today. The new marketplace includes trusted tools and services from Kaleido, AWS, and members of the new partnership program, all offered as plug-and-play.

Early adopters of the Kaleido Marketplace have said that it eliminates 80 percent of the custom code required to build their blockchain project. Clients now have access to native AWS integrations, popular services such as HD wallets for privacy and ID registries for organizational identity, as well as industry products such as Chainlink for smart contract oracles, Viant for supply chain management, OpenLaw and Clause.io for real-time legal contracts, and many others—all at the click of a button.

With the business value-add of blockchain technology expected to exceed $3.1 trillion by 2030 (Gartner), it’s easy to see why blockchain is one of the most talked about technologies in business today. In fact, 84 percent of executives said their companies were “actively involved” with blockchain when surveyed by PwC in August 2018. However, to date, most companies have struggled to build complete, production-ready blockchain solutions, compounded by a shortage of blockchain skills and talent across the industry.

Since its launch in May, Kaleido has helped organizations create over 1,000 blockchain networks with its Blockchain Business Cloud. Now, Kaleido is going even further, offering the first full stack of blockchain capabilities needed to build a complete solution, get to live production state and keep the solution up and running.

“We’ve seen successful patterns of deployment as enterprise networks go into production and we’ve baked these best practices into the Kaleido Marketplace services, to help radically simplify the adoption of blockchain and eliminate some of the specialized blockchain expertise needed,” said Kaleido Founder and COO, Sophia Lopez.

“The reality is only about 10 percent of an enterprise blockchain project is the blockchain itself. There are many other application, data and infrastructure components required to go into production,” said Kaleido Founder and CEO, Steve Cerveny. “I’m very excited that we have a whole cloud of blockchain technologies pre-integrated for our clients to use. The Kaleido Marketplace is a one stop shop for all things enterprise blockchain.”

One Kaleido client is Komgo, a cutting edge commodity trade and finance network comprised of global institutions like Citi, ING, Koch Supply & Trading, MUFG Bank, Societe Generale, Credit Agricole Group, BNP Paribas, Shell and others.

“By building on an open blockchain system, Komgo can select from the best protocols in development across the ecosystem and use existing building blocks for an optimized solution,” said Souleïma Baddi, Chief Executive Officer of Komgo. “Now with the proof of concepts and pilots behind us, Kaleido will help us deliver production ready products for a large number of participants at a very fast pace.”

Kaleido is also launching its Partnership Program in tandem with the marketplace, providing significant opportunities for third-party providers to join the ecosystem by promoting their offerings in the Kaleido Marketplace, embedding Kaleido in their own blockchain solutions, or accelerating client engagements by using Kaleido in their consultations.

“Having our legal smart contract solution promoted in the Kaleido Marketplace creates an instant channel to bring our technology to a global audience and immediate access for new clients,” said OpenLaw Co-founder Aaron Wright.

Greenfence Consumer and Radiant Earth are embed partners and are using Kaleido to enhance their own blockchain networks; Greenfence to help Hollywood studios such as Sony and Fox revolutionize digital marketing for movie fans, and Radiant Earth to equip NGOs with aggregated open Earth imagery and geospatial data. On the consulting side, systems integrators such as ConsenSys Solutions are now using Kaleido to accelerate their clients’ blockchain engagements.

Kaleido’s Blockchain Business Cloud and the new Marketplace are available now, try it for free at Kaleido.io.
