Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Presented is a very attractive high-grade example of this Babe Ruth classic. The 1948-1949 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Ruth is one of the most popular and striking of all Babe Ruth cards. It is on virtually every short list of the most classic and recognizable of all postwar baseball cards. The offered card is crisp and clean, with 75/25 centering toward the right. Bold printed colors have been aligned slightly out of register. Four sharp corners display only hints of wear at the tips. The reverse is clean and boldly printed. This is an outstanding example of one of the icons of postwar-card collecting. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
