I'm not sure of the particular record you are referring to, but there are many promotional items related to Babe Ruth. If you contact me with more details I can help you out.

Babe Ruth did a number of promotions for Esso which included the Esso Sponsored Boys club. There were many items made like pins and photo's, and could have included a record. There is a record called "Babe Ruth's Home Run Story" The "Babe Ruth's Home Run Story" 78 rpm record was released in 1920 on the Actuelle record label. Side one featuring an actual recording by the Babe, "Babe Ruth's Home Run Story," and side two "Abadele" performed by Duane Sawyer, and his Novelty Orchestra. Manufactured by the Pathe Freres Phonograph and Cinematography company. a France based international record label active from the 1890s through the 1930s. The "needle-cut" records were labeled Path? Actuelle. Extremely Rare the "Babe Ruth's Home Run Story" 78 rpm record in auction could sell for anywhere between $400. to $600. Possibly more.

A 1955 record called Greatest Moments in Sports 33 1/3 RPM LP featuring recordings of babe Ruth sells for bout $25.-$50.
