Al Smith and Babe Ruth........As I Head to APIC Convention

I am headed out to Columbus Ohio tomorrow for the 2012 National Convention of the American Political Item Collectors (APIC).  It will be a wonderful time of visiting with collector friends, educational breakout sessions, and numerous displays, exhibits, and vendor tables of great American political memorabilia.

The picture above combines two of my great passions, baseball (Yankees baseball especially), and political  collecting (especially Democatic political collecting).  In the picture, Babe Ruth visits with New York Democratic Governor Alfred E. Smith, for whom Ruth campaigned extensively in 1928 when Smith ran against Republican Herbert Hoover for the presidency.  Great photo.
