Description

Highly desirable 1921 E121 American Caramel Series of 80 Babe Ruth from the season in which the "Sultan of Swat" belted 59 round trippers. Graded 10 Poor 1 by SGC, this presentable specimen depicts Ruth heaving a pitch during his tenure with the Boston Red Sox and is one of only 26 total specimens from the designation judged by the third-party grading service. Presents much nicer than other similar copies at the grading tier with evenly rounded corners, a scant peripheral tear near the lower left edge apart from the central image and a perfectly clear black-and-white image. Moderate foxing consistent with storing methods does not significantly disrupt the overall presentation but adds a distinct "aged" feel to the cardboard treasure. The advertising back is absent of any paper loss or writing and is accentuated by bold typeface.
