1925 Champions Babe Ruth Exhibit-Style Card

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,040

Graded VG-EX 4 (MK) by PSA. Extremely rare Exhibit-style card (3-3/8 x 5-3/8 inches) featuring Babe Ruth in a follow-through swing. One of the few Ruth cards dating from the mid-1920s, this striking card was one in a series of thirty-two cards featuring the top athletes of the day, with a different athlete representing each sport. Babe Ruth was chosen to represent baseball, and he is the only ballplayer in the set. A small white box in the lower left corner has the printed notation “Babe Ruth [U.S.A.] World’s Champion Baseball Player.” Crisp image of Ruth, with even wear to the corners and a small "2" penned on the otherwise clean blank reverse, which accounts for the qualifier. One of Babe Ruth’s rarest Exhibit cards and one of only a few examples we have ever offered. This is a special and very distinctive looking Babe Ruth card that has always been one of our favorites, and which has received very little attention in large part simply because of its great rarity.  Please note that the card is mislabeled as 1932 Exhibits by PSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $2,040
