Answer: Back then there was a rule you could only win it once, and he had won in 1923.

"From 1915 – 1921 (during some of Babe’s most notable pitching and hitting years), the MVP award did not exist. From 1922-1929, the MVP award was reinstated and became the “League Awards”, during which time, Babe won only one award. Why? Because, according to the rules of the award at that time, a player was only allowed to receive the recognition once. This is why Babe did not come up in voting again until the rules regarding the award were changed in 1931 to what we know as the MVP today."

Interesting question about the MVP -- why doesn't a player's salary ever figure into it?

For example, if you're a 2nd year player on your rookie deal making $800k and you post 9 WAR, aren't you way, way more valuable to your team than an elite player who posted 10 WAR and made $25M? Particularly on a small market team?

If the award were "best player" this wouldn't be an issue, but we are routinely told it's about "value" to their team.
