Yes, we know this piece only dates back to the early 1960’s, which is new in Betsey’s world, but isn’t it wonderful? The Bambino Bean company used these 100 pound burlap bags to package pinto beans until Babe Ruth’s estate stopped the use of the Babe’s image. Betsey bought these five bags on one of her trips across the country over 10 years ago, and then forgot about them until she was up above the barn rummaging for treasures. So, whether you are a Red Sox fan, a Yankee fan, or just a fan of the game…one or more of these pieces would be perfect to add to your collection, and would look great on the wall as you cheer on your teams!
