1934 R310 Butterfinger Premiums: Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig (2)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Extremely attractive pair of key cards featuring Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig from the R310 Butterfinger premiums series. Each card is printed on thin stock measuring 7.75 x 9.5 inches and depicts the player in a black-and-white image along with a facsimile signature. The fragile paper stock of this issue makes high-grade examples extremely rare, and flaws such as light wrinkling, creasing, or tearing "come with the territory." The offered examples are among the finest we have ever seen, having been beautifully preserved throughout the years and presenting as Near Mint overall. Each is bright and crisp, with flawless images, perfect centering, and strong corners. Entirely free of creases or wrinkles, which so often plague these oversized cards. The blank reverse of the Gehrig is clean, while the Ruth displays faint traces of adhesive residue in each of the four corners. It is extremely light and insignificant, and is mentioned for the sake of extreme accuracy. Each of these R310 Butterfinger Premiums is far and above the typical condition for R310s and each is ideal for display. Spectacular 1930s premiums - the two keys to the set - featuring New York Yankees Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Total: 2 premiums. SOLD FOR $840
