Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Outstanding example of the key card from the 1935 Four-On-One Exhibit set featuring slate blue portraits of Boston Braves stars Babe Ruth, Frank Hogan, Wally Berger, and Ed Brandt, respectively. The blank-back card was produced by the Exhibit Supply Company of Chicago. This, along with his 1935 Goudey card, was Ruth’s last card ever issued as a player. Ruth left the Yankees following the 1934 season to join the Boston Braves. He stayed with the Braves only a few weeks, playing in just twenty-eight games, before announcing his retirement in late May 1935. The card displays even wear to the corners, flawless contrast, no creases or wrinkles, and centered a hint to the bottom right. The blank back is clean. This is a great card. It is one of the most interesting, significant, and overlooked of all Babe Ruth rarities. In our opinion, it would be hard to argue that they do not represent an outstanding value compared to many other Ruth cards which are more highly valued and not as rare. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
