Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. The only example graded at this level with just two graded higher! A superb example of Babe Ruth the key card from the hand-cut 1947 W602 Sports Exchange Baseball Miniatures set. Ruth is depicted in a portrait pose as a member of the New York Yankees. Crisp and clean, with carefully hand-cut edges that display bold red borders, four strong corners, and centered slightly to the top right. The blank reverse is entirely clean (one tiny black mark mentioned for accuracy). An outstanding example from this rarely seen 1940s strip-card issue. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
