1922 E121 American Caramel (Series of 120) Babe Ruth

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,160

Graded GOOD 2 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 and outstanding centering. A very faint vertical crease along the right side of the card (more visible from the reverse) is responsible for the modest assigned grade. The reverse is boldly printed and clean, with even, natural toning. This is a tremendous and very presentable example of this classic Babe Ruth card, which would be a worthy addition to any high-quality Babe Ruth or prewar-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,160
