Description

This 1922 Babe Ruth with the extremely scarce Lou Gertenrich back is the ONLY such reverse to have been evaluated by SGC. By his third full season in New York, Ruth was already such a sensation that the American Caramel Company of Pennsylvania began printing tribute cards to him. The subjects ranged from the “Bambino” appearing with a bird to the offered photo montage. Judged a 40 VG by SGC, this innovative card appears at the apex of the assigned grade. This specimen reveals only minor corner and edge wear, including a barely noticeable crease on the upper right corner. The centering is precise while the pronounced advertising back contains a stirring baseball related illustration and is problem-free. This unparalleled keepsake is an essential component to any advanced Class of 1936 Hall of Fame collection.
