1948 Leaf #3 Babe Ruth

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,133

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Presented is an exceptionally attractive example of this Babe Ruth classic. From an original-owner 1948 Leaf collection (balance of collection offered elsewhere in this auction) and submitted for grading by REA. The 1948 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Ruth is one of the most popular and striking of all Babe Ruth cards. It is on virtually every short list of the most classic and recognizable of all postwar baseball cards. The offered card is crisp and clean, with white borders framing a virtually flawless image which is centered just a touch to the bottom and right. All four corners are square with light wear visible under inspection. The reverse is clean and free of staining or excess print and centered to the bottom. This is an extremely attractive example of one of the icons of postwar-card collecting. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,133
