    Description

    1922 American Caramel Co. E121 Series of 120 "Babe" Ruth Photo Montage SGC 40 VG 3. Note the quotation marks around the word "Babe" in our listing title, as it is relevant to the value of the piece. This particularly rare candy card was printed in versions both with and without the punctuation in question, and we offer the scarcer and more desirable variation here. The SGC population charts make no distinction between the four variations of Ruth cards from this issue in their records, but it's still worth noting that only three examples of any style has ever topped this offering. Rounding of corners and a small crease in the bottom left are the only culprits here in regard to condition, leaving the surfaces (and hence the eye appeal) that of a much stronger card.
