Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Presented is an extremely attractive E121 American Caramel card of Babe Ruth. One of several different cards of Ruth in the E121 set, this is one of the all-time great Babe Ruth cards of the 1920s (or any era)! Referred to on checklists as the Babe Ruth "Photo Montage" variation, this classic card features three images of Ruth: a full-length image of Ruth posing with his bat set against a larger portrait of Babe, and a distant game-in-action photo in which Ruth is no doubt hitting a colossal home run. The card designers pulled out all the stops for this card! Crisp and clean, with even wear to the four corners and near-perfect centering. A few light wrinkles do not detract from the strong visual appeal of this card. The reverse is boldly printed and clean. This is an excellent example of this classic Babe Ruth card, which would be a very worthy addition to any high-quality Babe Ruth or prewar-card collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
