1932 R328 U.S. Caramel #32 Babe Ruth
Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,251.50
Graded GOOD+ 2.5 by PSA. Attractive GD+ example of this classic Babe Ruth card. This is one of Ruth's rarest 1930s cards and one of the key cards to the U.S. Caramel set. The 1932 multisport set produced by U.S. Caramel is considerably rarer than Goudeys and most other 1930s sets, and has long been recognized as among the most desirable issues of the era. This is a very pleasing example of this card, technically in modest grade. Well-centered with bold colors, a crisp image, and even wear to the corners. The card has been downgraded in part due to a lower left corner crease, as well as a light surface crease at the top part of the left border. These are not immediately visible at a glance due to the natural toning of the R328 cards, which can disguise certain flaws. The reverse is boldly printed and clean with only a small surface scuff and the previously mentioned creases. The R328 Ruth is far rarer than Ruth's 1933 Goudey counterparts. As the last card in the set, the R328 Ruth tended to gravitate to the bottom of the stack, exposing it to much more wear than other cards. This is an outstanding relatively affordable GD+ example of this classic and desirable 1930s Babe Ruth card. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,251.50
