Attractive black & white example of #1 Babe Ruth from the W511 strip-card series. The card displays excellent centering and four strong corners showing just hints of wear at the tips. Cut by hand, this example is narrower than the standard measurement and displays a slightly uneven cut to the right edge. Graded FAIR 20 by SGC, this example has been downgraded for pencil marks and scrapes of paper loss on the blank back reverse. This is a very presentable modestly graded example of one of Babe Ruth's most classic 1920s strip-cards and one that would be a significant addition to any Babe Ruth, strip-card, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
