    Description

    1921 Koester Bread George Ruth SGC 80 EX/NM 6. The first ever New York City "Subway Series" was the catalyst in giving birth to this exceedingly scarce issue, distributed in October 1921 by New York bakery "E.H. Koester" to celebrate the occasion. The issue made use of the New York Giants and Yankees images from the American Caramel Series of 120 (E121), and added a few more besides. These blank-backed cards are considerably more rare than the E121's, however, and the New York connection makes this Babe Ruth specimen a particular treasure. The fine condition is practically overkill here, with light corner wear the main factor in establishing the EX/MT rating. Only one other example has ever graded higher.
