Description

Presented is a 1927 Honey Boy #14 Babe Ruth that is graded a 50 VG-EX by SGC. According to the SGC population report, this pint-sized treasure is one of only three such examples to have been judged by the grading service, with only one reported better. This Canadian issue stands with the William Paterson series as the most elusive north- of- the- border sets to feature The Sultan of Swat. This black and white relic reveals a barely distinguishable vertical surface indentation and negligible corner wear, but retains decent centering and a pleasing eye appeal. The advertising reverse displays only slight soiling (perhaps period ice cream staining) but is otherwise clean and does nothing to adversely affect the overall grandeur of this cornerstone.
