Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by BVG (Beckett). Extremely attractive example of Babe Ruth from the R310 Butterfinger premiums series. The card is printed on thin stock measuring 7.75 x 9.5 inches and depicts Ruth in a black-and-white swing-thru pose along with a facsimile signature. The fragile paper stock of this issue makes high-grade examples extremely rare, and flaws such as light wrinkling, creasing, or tearing "come with the territory." The offered example is bright and crisp, with a flawless image, strong corners, and centered slightly low. Entirely free of creases or wrinkles, which so often plague these oversized cards. The blank reverse is clean. There are a few insignificant spots of age toning in the borders, primarily the upper left, and are mentioned for the sake of extreme accuracy. This R310 Butterfinger Premium is far and above the typical condition for R310s and is ideal for display. Spectacular 1930s premium - the key to the set - featuring New York Yankees Hall of Famer Babe Ruth. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
