Presented is an extremely attractive and exceptionally rare example of Babe Ruth from the 1923-1924 Exhibit Supply Co. series. To date, only five examples in any grade of Ruth from this set have been evaluated by PSA and SGC combined! Do not be fooled by the modest assigned grade! Well centered, with strong corners, a crisp image, and moderate natural toning. Graded POOR 10 by SGC for condition flaws solely relegated to the blank reverse on which several areas of black paper remain affixed, likely from removal from a scrapbook at one point in time. This is a superb example of this rare Exhibit card that would be a worthy addition to any Babe Ruth, Exhibit, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
