Listing Details

One of the great strip card issues, this is one of the hardest early Babe Ruth cards to find. A revered issue, the Ruth is of course the absolute key. Issued from 1916-1920, this is one of the earlier Babe Ruth cards in circulation. The offered card has rich color, and a well registered image. Some light creasing is present, the blank back is clean. A thin cut on the left border likely led to the Authentic grade. Do not assume another one of these will be hitting the market anytime soon!
