Very attractive example of Babe Ruth from the W519 strip-card series. Ruth is depicted in a portrait pose as a member of the New York Yankees. The hand-cut card displays a crisp image, bold colors, and centering well to the left. The corners show light, even wear and the blank reverse is clean with the exception of a small area of paper loss along the right edge. Irregularly cut side edges solely account for the Authentic designation from SGC. This is an attractive 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).
