    1922 E121 American Caramel "Babe" Ruth, Holding Bird SGC 84 NM 7 - The Finest Known! Extremely difficult to find in high-grade, this E121 Series of 120 American Caramel card features the legendary New York Yankees Hall of Fame outfielder Babe Ruth. One of several Ruth variations in the series, this variation has "Babe" in quote marks and pictures him holding a bird while standing next to an unidentified individual during some type of pregame ceremony or possibly a scene for one of the two films he played in during that era. Cards from this series, and especially featuring Ruth, rarely are available in this type of condition and this auction offers two of the highest graded E121 Ruth cards known to date. This represents a fantastic opportunity to add this SGC 84 NM 7 gem to one's early candy card or Babe Ruth specific collection. The chance to acquire this card, this well preserved will not come up again in the foreseeable future. A premier Ruth card collectible.
