Very attractive 112-page booklet measuring 5 1/2" x 8 1/8" with an illustrated image clearly picturing Babe Ruth on the cover.  The booklet pictures Spalding's entire equipment line for the year, and what it lacks in professional endorsements on the inside pages, it makes up for in condition, as this is quite a handsome piece.  EX appearance, the pages are brittle and lightly toned from age, with some light pencil writing on the top of the first page and some areas of mild wrinkling on the front and back cover.  Overall, a tremendous piece.  Interestingly, the typography on the cover is a match for the typography of the company's 1927 retail advertising displays, showing a conscious branding decision for the season.
