Description

    Population one of one!

    1923 V100 Willard Chocolate Babe Ruth PSA NM-MT 8.
    It's a vintage printed in the boldest typeface within the history of the New York Yankees, a season that delivered both a brand-new ballpark and the first of a record twenty-seven World Championships to date to the franchise. Nearly a century after his acquisition from the team's most hated rivals, Babe Ruth retains his position atop the vaunted hierarchy of the Bronx brotherhood, and the offered trading card expands upon the theme of unchallenged supremacy as the sole inhabitant of the PSA population chart's penthouse.

    Check out the online listing at the Sports Market Report website and you'll see this exact card pictured as the set's representative, a starring role it earns as the single finest example of the issue's key component. Assessed at NM-MT 8, this beauty is a full three points superior to its next closest challenger, and one of only ten representations ever submitted to the hobby's leading grading service. Minor age-toning to the paper stock is the only hint of the relic's advanced age offering every other hallmark of a virtually pristine trading card.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $50,000 - up.
