Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade large-format card (3.5 x 4.5 inches) featuring Ruth in a classic batting pose. Ruth, of course, is the key card to the distinctively designed 101-card R316 set. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with four strong corners, flawless picture quality, and centered to the bottom. Perfectly clean blank reverse. Few cards of Ruth date from the 1920s. Issued during the short window of time between the strip cards of the early 1920s and the colorful bubble-gum cards of the early 1930s, this card has always been appreciated for its powerful image of Ruth. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
