1922 E121 American Caramel (Series of 120) Babe Ruth

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,700

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Presented is an extremely attractive E121 American Caramel card of Babe Ruth. One of several different cards of Ruth in the E121 set, this is one of the all-time great Babe Ruth cards of the 1920s (or any era)! Referred to on checklists as the Babe Ruth "Photo Montage" variation, this classic card features three images of Ruth: a full-length image of Ruth posing with his bat set against a larger portrait of Babe, and a distant game-in-action photo in which Ruth is no doubt hitting a colossal home run. The card designers pulled out all the stops for this card! This is a beautiful card: Crisp and clean, with light even wear to the four corners (slightly more noticeable in the lower left where there is a small bend) and centering slightly to the left. The reverse is boldly printed and clean, with a small crease visible near the bottom edge. This is a tremendous and very conservatively graded example of this classic Babe Ruth card, which would be a very worthy addition to any high-quality Babe Ruth or prewar-card collection. SOLD FOR $2,700
