1928 F50 Harrington's Ice Cream #6 Babe Ruth
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,000
Graded EX 60 by SGC. Only two examples grade higher by SGC out of twenty-nine cards evaluated to date. Outstanding high-grade Babe Ruth from the 1928 F50 Harrington's Ice Cream set. The set is identical in design to several other issues of the era, such as Tharp's Ice Cream, Sweetman, and Yuengling's Ice Cream, but with advertising for Harrington's Ice Cream on the reverse. Collectors have always appreciated the rarity and primitive charm of this distinctive issue. The offered example of Ruth is crisp and clean, with a flawless image, even wear to the corners (slightly more to the the upper right), and centered to the left. Clean reverse. This is a superb example of the key card of Babe Ruth from this unusual and scarce 1920s set and would be an ideal addition to any Babe Ruth, Hall of Fame, or type-card collection. SOLD FOR $3,000
