Very attractive example of Babe Ruth from the W520 strip-card series. Ruth is depicted in a throwing pose as a member of the New York Yankees. The hand-cut card displays a crisp image, bold colors, moderate creasing, and centering well to the left. The corners show light, even wear and the blank reverse is entirely clean. Irregularly cut side edges solely account for the Authentic designation from SGC. This is a very presentable example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic 1920s strip-cards and one that would be a significant addition to any Babe Ruth, strip-card, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
