Lot # 302 (of 1336)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1922 E121 American Caramel (Series of 120) Babe Ruth - Holding Ball

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Modestly graded but still highly desirable example of Babe Ruth's E121 American Caramel card. One of several different cards of Ruth in the E121 set, this is one of the all-time classic Babe Ruth cards of the 1920s. Referred to on checklists as the Babe Ruth "Holding Ball" variation, this popular card features Ruth in a two-thirds length pose donning his New York Yankees cap and holding a baseball. While the image of Ruth is crisp and well centered, the card is graded FAIR 20 by SGC due to various condition issues, including creasing and rounding to the corners. Boldly printed reverse. This is an ideal example for someone who wants an authentic example of this classic Babe Ruth card, from the heart of his playing days, without spending the thousands of dollars that a higher-graded example would command.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,320
