    1921 Schapira Bros. Candy Babe Ruth Complete Set (7). Schapira had an exclusive agreement with Babe Ruth for a special promotion that allowed kids to acquire an autographed Babe Ruth Baseball in exchange for sending in 250 of "These Pictures To Schapira Bros. Inc." A dotted line was provided for proper cutting and then all went off in the mail. Even at a penny a box, that $2.50 was a monumental sum for most kids in the '20s. Offered is a 7-card complete set of 1921 Schapira Bros. Inc. of New York Babe Ruth cards. The set includes: SGC 40 VG 3: 2 cards, Ruth/Portrait (with arrows) and Ruth/Waiting for a High One; SGC 35 Good+ 2.5: 2 cards, Ruth/They Passed Him and Ruth/Home Run; SGC 30 Good 2: 3 cards, Ruth/Cleared the bags, Ruth/Over the Fence and Ruth/Portrait (No Arrows).
