Graded VG 40 by SGC. 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! This is a beautiful card: Crisp and clean, with honest wear to the four corners and outstanding centering. A crease across the upper right corner is responsible for the assigned grade. The reverse is boldly printed and clean, with even, natural toning. This is a tremendous and very attractive example of this classic Babe Ruth card, which would be a worthy addition to any high-quality Babe Ruth or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
