Offered is the actual original artwork used to produce card #137 "Babe And Mgr. Huggins" from the 1962 Topps set. Topps celebrated Ruth in appropriate fashion in the 1962 Topps set, awarding him a ten-card subset devoted to his career and life. This artwork was purchased at the famous 1989 Topps/Guernsey's auction. It has not seen the light of day since 1989 and has been consigned to this auction directly from the original purchaser! The original flexichrome artwork measures 6.5 by 5 inches and is in Near Mint condition. A small perimeter area of the artwork was cropped out on the final issued card. The artwork is accompanied by the original negative (3.25 x 2.25 inches) and an example of the issued card. This is an outstanding original 1962 Topps baseball card artwork from one of the most interesting and noteworthy cards in the set. All three items are framed together to make a beautiful display! Dimensions: 11 x 12 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
