1925 Champions Babe Ruth Exhibit-Style Card

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,058

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely rare Exhibit-style card (3-3/8 x 5-3/8 inches) featuring Babe Ruth in a follow-through swing. One of the few Ruth cards dating from the mid-1920s, this striking card was one in a series of thirty-two cards featuring the top athletes of the day, with a different athlete representing each sport. Babe Ruth was chosen to represent baseball, and he is the only ballplayer in the set. A small white box in the lower left corner has the printed notation “Babe Ruth [U.S.A.] World’s Champion Baseball Player.” This is a very attractive card! Crisp and clean, both front and back, with a blank reverse. A hint of corner wear and a couple very light surface creases have no impact on the otherwise Excellent appearance. One of Babe Ruth’s rarest Exhibit cards and one of only a few examples we have ever offered. This is a special and very distinctive looking Babe Ruth card that has always been one of our favorites, and which has received very little attention in large part simply because of its great rarity. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,058
