Graded FAIR 20 by SGC. Attractive E120 American Caramel of Babe Ruth, the key card from this distinctive early 1920s caramel issue. Ruth is featured in full uniform holding a baseball in his right hand. This is an exceptional example of one of the great classic Ruth cards of the early 1920s. Flawless image clarity, strong centering, moderate creasing, and light corner wear. Paper loss on the reverse is responsible for the assigned grade. While Babe Ruth cards have always held a special place with collectors, interest in early Ruth cards has seen a dramatic increase in recent years. This is a very attractive and rarely encountered example of key card Babe Ruth from this classic 1920s caramel set that is the most comprehensive set of the era, issued during Ruth's third year with the Yankees. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
