Description1922 W575-1 Henry Johnson Babe Ruth PSA VG 3 - Only PSA-Graded Examples! The roster and poses found W575-1 strip card issues parallel those of the E121 American Caramel series but brands are seen far less often. Being an Alameda, California based firm, and the fact that back are not printed by hand, their distribution must have certainly been limited geographically as today examples are found only few and far between. Our offered card is Babe Ruth, pictured with Boston but the team designation is the New York Yankees and is of course the key to the series. The card shows light bends in the top two corners with crisp graphics and a very nicely centered portrait. Graded PSA VG 3. A review of the PSA census report shows just four cards recorded on their census. Just two are graded VG with none rated higher. For the Ruth collectors they don't come much harder to find than this.
Guide Value or Estimate: $25,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
