Presentable low-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. Graded PR 1 by PSA, the offered card is bright and crisp, with bold colors, and a virtually flawless image centered towards the right. The obvious flaws include rounded corners, heavy creasing, and soiling on the reverse. This is a relatively affordable (compared to what this card would sell for in higher grade) example of one of the icons of postwar-card collecting. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
