Recreating the pinstripes for Babe Ruth’s jersey

Restoration of Baseball Hall of Fame legend, Babe Ruth's jersey. Textile conservation, repair, baseball memorabilia

Recreating the pinstripes as part of the restoration of Babe Ruth’s jersey. Bits of the jersey had been trimmed away by fans over the years while it was on display, but clearly not too far out of reach! The compensation fabric is created by using archival materials that will not harm the artifact and could easel be reversed if necessary.
